Join the curator of Union Hall’s current art exhibition, Against Nature, for a screening of Metamorphosis (2020), a 3-part film proposal by the Institute of Queer Ecology to restructure how the world is imagined and how it operates today, modeled after the life cycles of holometabolous insects.
The film’s runtime is approximately 45 minutes, and a brief discussion will follow.
Limited seating; RSVP in advance! Light refreshments provided.
Metamorphosis is Narrated by Mykki Blanco and Danny Orlowski. First launched on June 27th, 2020 | Commissioned by DIS for release online at DIS.ART
Prelude: Serotiny (05:28 minutes)
Episode 1: Grub Economics (14:54 minutes)
Episode 2: Liquidation in the Pupal Stage (13:16 minutes)
Episode 3: Emergence (15:30 minutes)
Against Nature, curated by Shawn C. Simmons, explores the emerging field of queer ecology in response to prevailing ideas of human versus nature. As we face the climate crisis of today and tomorrow, each featured artist enacts their own utopian vision by reimagining the relationship between queer identity and nature.
