As part of his month-long residency at the Stony Island Arts Bank in conjunction with the Chicago Architectural Biennial, painter and installation artist Carlos Bunga will screen and discuss a selection of films that have informed and inspired his work.
Bunga is well known for his large-scale installations made of common, unassuming materials, built with the intention of ultimately being destroyed. His artwork can be described as painting that exists at the intersection of architecture and sculpture.
Film scholar and Black Cinema House curator Jacqueline Stewart will moderate a discussion with the artist following the screening. Seating is limited, so we ask that you RSVP to guarantee a seat.
