Adam Shingwak Khalil (Ojibway) is a filmmaker and artist from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, currently based in Brooklyn, NY. His practice attempts to subvert traditional forms of ethnography through humor, relation, and transgression. Adam collaborates with his brother Zack Khalil. This lecture will focus on the Khalil's approach to research and collaborative creative process and will include selected excerpts from their films. Their films and installations have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Walker Arts Center, e-flux, UnionDocs, and Microscope Gallery.

This is the first visiting artist program presented by the newly formed Department of Visual and Media Arts at Grand Valley State University. It is curated by the Office for Public Culture and made possible by the Kutsche Office of Local History at GVSU, Wealthy Theater, and ArtPeers. Adam visits Grand Rapids and GVSU for public programs and to conduct research for future projects. More information about program partners and how to travel to the events can be found here:

Also join us on Sunday, October 15th at Wealthy Theater for a Discussion and Screening of the Khalil's film "INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./it flies. falls./]”.
