Simon Leung in conversation with Project for an Archive of the Future Anterior (Thom Donovan and Sreshta Rit Premnath)
Saturday, March 26th, 4 :00-5:30pm
Please join us for a conversation between Project for an Archive of the Future Anterior and Simon Leung on the occasion of Leung’s solo exhibition, War After War, at the CUE Art Foundation.
We will discuss Simon Leung’s new video in the context on his ongoing collaboration with Warren Niesluchowski, which began with the work Warren Piece (in the ’70s) almost 20 years ago. We will discuss Leung’s meditations on the residual effects of the Vietnam War and his notion that war inhabits all of us.
Initiated by Thom Donovan and Sreshta Rit Premnath, Project for an Archive of the Future Anterior is envisioned as an ongoing gathering of video interviews in which artists, writers, scientists and colleagues from various disciplines discuss unrealized social and/or personal projects. The interviews will present futures which never came to pass, but may still hold the potential to be realized in the present. By producing an archive of futures, which have yet to come to pass the project hopes to alter the course of the future, as well as change the way we narrate and remember the past.
