Uriel Orlow Presents Multi-Media Lecture/Performance as a Part of Survival Techniques

4.23.12_Uriel-Orlow-Aide-Memorie.jpg4.23.12_Uriel-Orlow.jpgWeaving together salvaged film clips, artist Uriel Orlow will present his multi-media masterpiece Aide-Mmoire at the Hokin Lecture Hall on April 25 at 6 pm. The show, which runs in conjunction with the Museum of Contemporary Photographys current exhibition, Survival Techniques: Narratives of Resistance is part slideshow and part obscure history lesson, blending distant places and times to create a pictorial narrative merging the past, present and future. In his reconstructed pictorial landscapes, Orlow references such seemingly disparate sites as Biblical Mount Ararat, a Ghost Town in Northern Armenia on the site of an earthquake, and a Kurdish village in Turkey built out of the rubble of an ancient Armenian monastery.Admission is free and open to the public.
