Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605

Video Playlist: The Old Spaghetti Factory

Programmed by Karthik Pandian

Video Playlist is a recurring series of one-night public video screenings guest programmed by artists whose work engages with topics connected to MoCP exhibitions. Karthik Pandian will screen a selection of film and video works drawn from his cohort of co-conspirators. Pandian's practice seeks to unsettle the contradictions at the heart of the monument. Through moving image, sculpture and syntheses of the two, his work imagines freedom in relation to the impositions of architecture.

Featuring work from:

Pennacchio Argentato
Nick Bastis
Mariah Garnett
Barry Johnston  
Rose Lowder 
Basim Magdy 
Harry Dodge and Stanya Kahn 
Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson 
Sophia Rhee
