Opening Thursday, October 26th, from 4:15PM - 5:30PM
Join us for this conversation with SAIC Faculty Daniel R. Quiles and Anahita Ghazvinizadeh.
Drawing on their knowledge of contemporary art and world cinema, faculty Ghazvinizadeh and Quiles will trace the theme of collective memory across Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s feature films, the gallery-bound works in “The Serenity of Madness” exhibition, and related works by international directors. How does a transnational perspective—in which national traumas are a paradoxically common starting point for auteurs—allow us to better comprehend Weerasethakul’s approach to Thai history and politics?
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Apichatpong Weerasethakul: The Serenity of Madness” on view at the SAIC Sullivan Galleries through December 8. For more information on all related programs visits saic.edu/serenityofmadness
