Tasks of the Translator Tasks of the Translator

Date + Time

Thursday, January 08, 2009
7:00 p.m.


Phyllis Wattis Theater


Held in conjunction with Passageworks, this program organized by McDowell expands upon the show's central concepts of "the passage" and contemporary art that traverses literal or conceptual space to engage with an "elsewhere." Short films by Yto Barrada, Matthew Buckingham, Nathaniel Dorsky, Steve McQueen, and Clemens von Wedemeyer address exhibition themes particularly relevant today, including the slipperiness of communication, lost histories, navigation, and translation.
