Press Release

Mitchell-Innes & Nash is pleased to present 35 days of film, a summer screening of works dating from 1965 to 2018, which will be presented over the course of the summer at the gallery’s Chelsea location. The exhibition features a selection of films and videos by a dozen artists that call for a re-examination of the screen as the stage upon which reality can be reflected and changed. Considering themes of media, labor, consumption, gender politics and memory, these works feel particularly striking against the backdrop of today’s cultural environment in which the hierarchy of information dissemination has collapsed and new public discourses have formed.

The exhibition includes films by Monica Bonvicini, GCC, General Idea, Mary Kelly, Christopher Miner, Pat O'Neill, Hardeep Pandhal, Pope.L, Martha Rosler and Jacolby Satterwhite.
