Urban Video Project (UVP) and parent organization, Light Work, are pleased to announce the exhibition of Haunted Ethnography: new experimental documentary from February 16 – March 25, 2017 at UVP’s outdoor architectural projection venue at the Everson Museum of Art. The exhibition features the work of Carl Elsaesser, Sky Hopinka, and João Vieira Torres.
Haunted Ethnography: new experimental documentary is a group exhibition and related indoor screening event showcasing several recent video and experimental film works by emerging artists exploring the rich but problematic genre of ethnographic documentary as a locus of aesthetic and conceptual innovation in the medium. In this selection of works, the boundary between the ethnographic and the auto-ethnographic blurs, and the traditional ethnographic “encounter with the other” becomes troubled, twinned, dislocated, haunted.
This exhibition is part of the year-long program, UVP 2016-17: Interzones.
Haunted Ethnography Outdoor Exhibition Program:
Sky Hopinka: Jaaji Approx.

This event is FREE & OPEN to the public. Reception follows. Co-sponsored by the Syracuse University Humanities Center.
This exhibition is part of UVP 2016-2017: Interzones, a year-long program of exhibitions and events at Urban Video Project and partner organizations exploring liminal states, haunted places, and the space in-between.
All Urban Video Project exhibitions are made possible through a generous grant from the New York State Council on the Arts.
