At The Studio Museum in Harlem, a new season means new discoveries.
Every Sunday, Sasha and her father come to our free workshops to learn something new about art—and each other. The Studio Museum brings art alive. Here, exhibitions like our current When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South do more than bring unique, world-class artwork into our galleries— they inspire hundreds of performances, talks with artists, tours and workshops every year. And they inspire the people that come through our doors, across generations.
Help spark more discoveries in 2014 by making a gift and spreading the word so artists of every age can be brought together. Your support, in any amount, will mean new experiences for schools and families, locals and visitors, lifetime Studio Museum members and passerby, and art lovers from all walks of life.
On Wednesday 21st May 2014, The Future Weird returns with (NON-)RESIDENT ALIENS, an evening of short films about migration, borders, gentrification and contested space. Remembering so-called “black sites”– where government projects are conducted outside of a country’s territory – and isolated immigrant detention centers, we invite you to consider the kind of landscapes we protect, the people we eliminate, and the shocking logic of labour without bodies.
NON-RESIDENT ALIENS presents clips from the archive, shorts by Alex Rivera & Chiwetel Ejiofor, photography by Richard Mosse & Ingrid Pollard and a dystopic coming-of-age Brazilian TV drama set in a starkly unequal future.
