Film Screening and Conversation with Kenneth Tam

Thursday, March 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


In conjunction with the exhibition “Kenneth Tam: Standing in Soft Formation,” and in collaboration with Tufts Film + Media Studies Program, Tufts University Art Galleries is presenting a special screening of three short films/videos by Kenneth Tam: “All of M” (2019), “Breakfast in Bed” (2016) and “sump” (2015). The screening will be followed by conversation with Tam and Luis Arnías, a filmmaker from Venezuela, and faculty from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts. All are welcome and advance registration through Eventbrite is appreciated.

As evident in “Standing in Soft Formation,” Tam’s work in film, video and sculpture has long explored and critiqued modern-day masculinity through staged social rituals that trade in deep awkwardness: be they pre-prom photo-shoots, fraternity probates, or all-male clubs. Working with non-actors found via Craigslist, Tam loosely scripts scenes for performance, creating often tender, funny, and yes, awkward videos and films.
