“Some People” Opening Tonight

Join us tonight for a lecture by New York-based artists Anthony Aziz and Sammy Cucher about their new body of work for the exhibition Some People.  For Some People, the artists have filled the IMA’s McCormack Forefront Galleries with four expansive video installations that, together, confront the artists’ complex feelings in relation to conflict in the Middle East. Aziz + Cucher have distilled years of research and travel into these videos, which take recent and current conflicts out of a specific place and time to speak about the seemingly never-ending cycle of senseless destruction.

Here’s a sneak peek into the galleries, where Aziz + Cucher have been fine-tuning their work:

    Hopefully their conversation about the never-ending cycle of senseless destruction will shed light on the IMA contemporary department’s never-ending cycle of choosing senseless and irrelevant artworks.
