A FULL SPECTRUM
"All at once, I feel everything, a full spectrum of colors"
–Chinonyeelu Uchechi Amobi
A FULL SPECTRUM looks at the way artists map space. This video program points to the book postcolonial space(s), edited by G. B. Nalbantoglu and C. T. Wong, which begins “[The term postcolonial space] conveys both a negative moment that displays and displaces binary constructions and fixed categories and a positive one of a promise of becoming for new languages, new subject positions, and new modes of spatiality.”
Nalbantoglu and Wong comment on architecture, but their words are apt for film and video which are like architecture, spatial, and temporal mediums that document social history. The artists in A FULL SPECTRUM blend classical narratives with intimate, personal stories offering unique views into the brilliant, complicated moments of life–of evanescence, conversation, technology, history, and family.
Participating artists include Basma Alsharif, Chinonyeelu Uchechi Amobi, Kelman Duran, and Akram Zaatari. A FULL SPECTRUM is organized by Marco Kane Braunschweiler.
