Rami George: Film Screening

Thursday, August 10, 2023

5:30 – 7:30 pm

Cash bar and light bites at 5:30; Screening begins at 6:00


In conjunction with their exhibition Spheres of Influence at Wavepool, the CAC is pleased to host a film screening of Rami George’s Video Playlist (2020). The playlist relates to their ongoing exploration into the intentional community, or cult, The Samaritan Foundation. The program includes sound works and a selection of George’s video essays alongside excerpts from public media about the community, and short films by late Chicago-based experimental filmmaker Allen Ross.

Rami George (b. 1989, USA) is an interdisciplinary artist currently based on Lenape land in what is now called Philadelphia. Their work—spanning photo, video, installation, text, and sound—has been presented in exhibitions and screenings at MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge; Anthology Film Archives, New York; Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow; Grand Union, Birmingham; the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; LUX, London; the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago; the William Way LGBT Community Center, Philadelphia; and elsewhere. Spheres of Influence—an exhibition exploring the relationships between food and spirituality by way of the artist's own family narrative—will be on display at Wave Pool (Cincinnati) as part of their Welcome (M)Art series from July 8 - September 4, 2023. They continue to be influenced and motivated by political struggles and fractured narratives.

Opening Reception for Spheres of Influence at Wave pool: July 8th 6:00-9:00 pm
