Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth: Video Screening and Discussion

November 21, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth

• Screening and Discussion • Free!

Wednesday, November 21st | 5:00 – 7:00 pm

Screening & Discussion: 5:30 pm

On Wednesday, November 21, 2018, discover our current exhibition, Days of Reading: beyond this state of affairs through the interpretive lens of 5 youth participants.

Starting at 5:00 pm, participants of the sixth edition of our Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth [IIY] program, Mark Ginther, Tuva Bergstrom, Dylan VanDamme, Jordan Santiago and Victor Ilunga will offer the presentation of a short interpretive video produced by them in collaboration with Plug In ICA.

The Interpreting Youth program is, yet, another way Plug In ICA provides an entry into conversations and practices happening in contemporary art today. It is integral to the ICA’s educational programming to audiences in the community.

The screening offers a visual reflection of the youth’s collective and individual experience of Days of Reading: beyond this state of affairs, and marks the culmination of an intensive four week session, working and thinking together about the exhibition, and about video as an interpretive mode. For this iteration of the program, participants had the opportunity to work closely with our Assistant Curator, Luther Konadu, to discuss process, approach and multi-media content creation.

The youth screening and panel discussion will begin at 5:30 pm, followed by a short reception. Assistant Curator, Luther Konadu, will moderate the panel discussion with IIY participants. Everyone is welcome! Snacks and refreshments will be served.

Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth is designed for youth ages 16 to 24. The program reverses a pre-existing interpretive model used within arts institutions that often produce short videos as educational devices. The “Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth” program inversely begins with the youth’s experience of the artwork, challenging conventional models of art interpretation by overturning basic roles of authority and authorship.
