The Projectionist brings together video, painting, performance, and objects from The Reach’s historical collections to explore cinematic histories, settler narratives, gender roles, and museum collections as sites of contested value and values, as well as the role played by museum artifacts (and objects in general) in the construction of identities.
Neufeld’s expansive and playful approach to exhibition-making conflates artistic and curatorial conventions while loosely tethering strands of narrative and pictorial traditions with an overarching sense of theatricality.
The Projectionist includes periodic performances by a local actor who engages with objects and ideas in the exhibition.
Performance times are as follows:
Saturday, March 10, 4pm
Friday March 16, 12:30pm
Friday March 23, 12:30pm
Saturday, March 31, 12pm
