This screening of short videos by artists included in Stories of Almost Everyone reflects and refers back to works and ideas that appear in the exhibition. Organized around the concept that inanimate objects and inert cultural artifacts are conduits for narrative histories, the program considers how artists use moving images to extend the life of things and materials that would otherwise appear to be stable and resolute. Contributors include Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, Isabelle Cornaro, Mark Leckey, Klara Lidén, and Shahryar Nashat.
