Exhibition: August 6, 2019 through October 4, 2019

Symposium + Events: Friday, September 27 and Saturday, September 28, 2019

Reception: Friday, September 27, 6–7:30pm, Grunwald Gallery

The Grunwald Gallery and Black Film Center/Archive are pleased to present Rough and Unequal, a film by Kevin Jerome Everson. The film will be exhibited in the Grunwald Gallery as the centerpiece for a symposium featuring the filmmaker in collaboration with IU Faculty, students and Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields Associate Curator of American Art Dr. Kelli Morgan. This installation expands the Black Film Center/Archive’s exploration of the reverberations between the genre of nonconformist filmmaking known as “the avant-garde” and the parallel insurgent cinemas of the African Diaspora. The screening of Rough and Unequal in an art gallery setting is consistent with previous screenings, providing a contemplative space for the 11-minute silent film. The presentation of the film in this setting, where the public will be able to revisit the film over a period of time, will provide a viewing experience very different than one that can be provided in the cinema. Placing Everson’s film in an art gallery context draws attention to the visual aspects of the film and creates the connection to visual art.
