Jeanne Liotta: Crosswalk (2010)
Apr 01, 2020 - Apr 30, 2020
The Box

Experience a slice of neighborhood life in pre-COVID-19 New York City through award-winning filmmaker Jeanne Liotta's Crosswalk, streaming here through April 30.

"Nuyo-realism" from the streets of Manhattan's Lower East Side, Crosswalk is a place-portrait in sound and image that’s shot at the stylistic intersection of home movie and cinema verité. Filmed on consecutive Good Fridays, the short work highlights the hybrid collage of peoples, cultures, and performances that characterizes daily life in the LES. Crosswalk was made with support from the Wexner Center’s Film/Video Studio residency program. (19 mins., video)

Stanya Kahn: No Go Backs
January 22–April 26 2020

This winter, interdisciplinary artist Stanya Kahn will present the world premiere of No Go Backs (2020). It was shot on Super 16mm and was supported by a Wexner Center Film/Video Studio residency.

Stanya Kahn is known for videos that play with fiction, reality, humor, pathos, and the uncanny. The center presented Kahn’s celebrated film Stand in the Stream (2011-17) in The Box and hosted a visit from the artist in April 2018.

In her follow-up No Go Backs, two teens leave the city on their bikes, half-prepared but ready for a quick departure. The precarity of an endangered world haunts the quiet of this wordless film as the kids make their way deeper into the wilderness, and the earth itself emerges as a towering protagonist. When more kids leave the city, their compressed, visceral journey becomes an allegorical epic for an entire generation that must make a new way forward.

Kahn will also exhibit animations in the lower lobby made with marks, characters, and motifs from her paintings and drawings.

Stanya Kahn: No Go Backs is curated by Lucy I. Zimmerman, Associate Curator of Exhibitions.
