Film Screening: Ali Cherri and Anton Ginzburg
Thursday, November 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Presented as part of the Tufts University Art Galleries exhibition “The Sun Rises in the West and Sets in the East” and in collaboration with Tufts Film and Media Studies Program, this film screening features the work of two exhibiting artists, Ali Cherri and Anton Ginzburg, followed by a conversation with the artists and guest curator Sara Raza.
Cherri will present his 2015 film,”The Digger,” which focuses on the keeper of a ruined Neolithic necropolis in the Sharjah desert in the United Arab Emirates, and his Sisyphean task of digging the site out of the sands. Ginzburg will share his film “Walking the Sea” (2013), in which the artists literally and metaphorically crosses the Aral Sea, an inland salt-water sea that lies between Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
