Unfortunately, Vic Chesnutt is unable to come to Minneapolis for the Contemporary Art in Conversation with Jem Cohen on Thursday, April 27. Please join us on the same date and time for an artist talk by Cohen and a conversation with Dean Otto, Curator of Film/Video at the Walker Art Center.
Shooting in hundreds of locations with little or no crew, Cohen collects street footage, portraits, and sounds. The resulting films include elements of the documentary, narrative, and experimental approaches. His feature-length documentaries are Instrument (1999), made with and about the band Fugazi, and Benjamin Smoke (2000), codirected by Peter Sillen. In this conversation illustrated with film clips, Cohen talks with Walker Film/Video Curator Dean Otto.
Chain will be shown on Wednesday, April 26 at 7:30 pm in the Cinema.
