3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
- pin Hide Map Wealthy Theatre 1130 Wealthy St SE, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49506
This free program will include a screening of "INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./it flies. falls./]” and a discussion with local artists Shane McSauby, Kay Mayer, and Krzysztof Lower, who are a part of the curatorial team.
Adam Khalil and Zack Khalil’s film "INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./it flies. falls./]" re-imagines an ancient Ojibway story, the Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history.
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. The Khalils 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:
