Screening and Discussion with Brett Kashmere and Lester Munson

Spectator Sports exhibiting artist Brett Kashmere will present highlights from his experimental documentary in progress, From Deep, which considers professional basketball in connection to wider cultural concerns including race, class, Hip Hop, and youth culture. Sports writer and commentator Lester Munson will join Kashmere for a conversation on the culture of basketball. 

Brett Kashmere is a Canadian-born, Pittsburgh-based filmmaker, curator, and writer. Combining traditional research methods hybrid interfaces, Kashmere's experimental documentaries explore the intersection of history and memory, geographies of identity, and the politics of representation. Lester Munson has reported on the sports industry for the past 23 years for news outlets including Sports Illustrated, ESPN, and WTTW Chicago.  He is also an adjunct instructor at the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism and holds a BA degree in history from Princeton University and a JD from the University Of Chicago School Of Law.
