Memories for the Future: Garrett Bradley, Tina Campt, and Trevor Mathison in Conversation

March 18, 2021, 5:00pm-7:00pm EST, Online event

Join artist and filmmaker Garrett Bradley, composer Trevor Mathison, a collaborator on Bradley’s America (2019), and scholar Tina Campt, author of Listening to Images (Duke University Press, 2017) for a conversation exploring the presence of archives, and the process of imagining to bring forth histories and memories lost to us, as a practice of archival repair—a theme throughout Bradley’s work.

This special event is the culmination of the Memories for the Future workshop series. Memories for the Future invited audiences of all ages to create short films that remember the places, people, and histories they have lost or left behind. Taking inspiration from Bradley’s interest in repairing archival absences, Memories for the Future considered how sound and moving images can evoke personal memories to transform collective history. A series of workshops facilitated by filmmakers, sound artists, and other visual storytellers, illustrated how to use the filmmaking and scoring techniques. The evening will also premiere a selection of films created by workshop participants.

This program is presented in collaboration with The Studio Museum in Harlem on the occasion of Projects: Garrett Bradley (November 2020-March 21, 2021). Register for the program here.
