Processing the Process, Together:
Filmmakers and Participants Reflect on Documenting the WMM Journey
Screening of the video portrait series created for the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center's Women’s Mobile Museum (WMM). The video portraits document the year-long collaboration with South African artists Zanele Muholi and Lindeka Qampi and 10 Philadelphia women as they learn photography, explore issues of representation and challenge social and economic barriers in the art world.
The screening will be followed by a conversation facilitated by Dr. Kathleen Walls (WMM Project Advisor) with filmmakers Cindy Burstein and Anula Shetty and WMM artists Shana-Adina Roberts and Muffy Ashley Torres about craft, creativity, and collaboration in the process of producing the Women’s Mobile Museum video portrait series.
The Women’s Mobile Museum is both a manifesto and a delivery system for reclaiming the space and function of presenting art. It challenges the current hierarchy of the art world, and more broadly the intellectual world. WMM envisions a decolonized art museum that welcomes all people.
Doors open 6:30, screening at 7 pm, panel discussion at 7:30pm, Q&A at 8 pm
