Whitney Kimball, Vox Populi’s third AUX Curatorial Fellow, presents “Schmart World,” a series of programming that celebrates and examines the rough and incandescent world of radical collective making.
“Schmart World” kicks off on September 26 with the debut of Pig Story, a film conceived of by inmates at Manhattan’s Lincoln Correctional Facility, and produced in spring 2014 by video/performance artist Miles Pflanz and sound artist Kate Levitt. The film represents the experience of incarceration through a fictional story of monster pigs, told through deranged flashing visuals, primal electronic noise, and a motorcycle stunt. Miles Pflanz and Kate Levitt are scheduled to perform as well.
The AUX Curatorial Fellowships have been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
