The department of Film and Video is pleased to Welcome Laura Huertas Millán to the MassArt Ciné Culture Screening series on Tuesday November 16 at 7pm EST via Zoom.

 

Laura Huertas Millán is a French-Colombian artist and filmmaker, whose work stands at the intersection of cinema, contemporary art and research. Entwining experimental ethnography, ecological and decolonial thinking, historical long-term enquiries, and fiction, her moving image work engages with strategies of resistance and survival. Sensuous and immersive, her films propose embodied, emotional and reflexive experiences, third spaces imagined as healing altered states.

 

Huertas Millán’s films have been screened in numerous cinema festivals, and various retrospectives of her work have been organized internationally. In the contemporary art field, Millán’s latest solo exhibitions have been held at the MASP São Paulo, Maison des Arts de Malakoff, and Medellín ́s Modern Art Museum. Her films have also been exhibited and screened in art institutions (including Centre Pompidou Paris and the Guggenheim Museum in NY) and biennials, and are part of private and public collections internationally.

 

Huertas Millán holds a practice-based PhD on Ethnographic Fictions developed between PSL University (SACRe program) and the Sensory Ethnography Lab (Harvard University). She works as an educator in academic and alternative spaces, and is part of a curatorial and research initiative with Rachael Rakes and Onyeka Igwe on alter and anti ethnographies.

 

This event is free and open to the public.
