5212 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94618
Part of event series: Photography Lecture Series
Orit Ben-Shitrit is an artist, photographer and filmmaker from New York. She will be discussing her work as a mode of resistance to market forces. Orit will screen and discuss her work VIVE LE CAPITAL (RT 15'24", 2012). During her talk Orit hopes to distinguish between art and design as two different modes of making. She welcomes your participation and thoughts.
Working with video, photography, performance and choreography, Orit Ben-Shitrit utilizes movement and bodies to implicate the powers that be, their mechanisms of domination and the potential for violence. Her recent works investigate the relationship between the State and the individual, the unspoken ties between art and finance, and a schizophrenic response to anxiety ridden cognitive capitalism.
She has recently exhibited at MACRO Museo d'arte contemporanea Roma; Museum Van Loon, Amsterdam, El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe, the Haifa Museum of Art; Biennial of Moving Image (BIM) at Museum MUNTREF, Centro de Arte Contemporáneo, Buenos Aires; the Royal College of Art, London; Anna Kustera Gallery and the Nathan Cummings Foundation, New York; Mana Contemporary; Videobrasil in São Paulo (2011, 2013); The 3CL, Luxembourg; as well as in Austria, Germany, Finland, Russia, Slovenia, Spain and the US and China.
