ULRIKE OTTINGER IN CONVERSATION

REDCAT presents a virtual screening of the documentary EXILE SHANGHAI, followed by a Q & A with its director Ulrike Ottinger.

Shot by Ottinger herself, the film conjures memories of Jewish immigrant lives in Shanghai—from Sephardim in the mid-19th century, to Russian emigrés escaping pogroms, to Europeans fleeing the Shoah. Unexpected versions of utopias emerged—such as the existence of a queer scene or the opening of Viennese-style pastry shops in the ghetto where the community was confined during the Japanese occupation. *

This event is curated by Bérénice Reynaud. See link below for details.

ULRIKE OTTINGER—EXILE SHANGHAI*

Intermission: 7 pm on the West Coast; 10 pm East Coast.

Screening resumes at 7:30 pm PDT, followed by the Q & A.

From September 19 at 4:30 pm PDT, EXILE SHANGHAI will be available to stream for 72 hours

PAMELA PHATSIMO SUNSTRUM — BATTLECRY

In this latest body of work, I am interested in the fragility of the hero; the ways in which the hero is both heroic and anti-heroic; both a victor and a perpetrator who can experience violence but also cause violence. I am interested in the moment when the hero, despite being on the field of battle, cannot help but become soft, must go inward, must cry. — Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum*

BATTLECRY—an exhibition of new paintings by Sunstrum—is now on view in London. These large scale works investigate, among other things, histories of post-colonial portraiture and romanticist landscape paintings.

PAMELA PHATSIMO SUNSTRUM—BATTLECRY*
