29 SEPTEMBER – 1 OCTOBER 2017
Tate Modern will be presenting a survey of films made by Kevin Jerome Everson: September 29-October 1, 2017. Included in the survey are films made in Windsor as part of the Mobile Frames series, along with the new long-form film Rhino set in Florence circa 1530s, exploring the days leading up to the assassination of Alessandro de’ Medici.
“The Kevin Jerome Everson film series opens with previews of the artist’s most recent works, Round Seven and Rhino, presented ahead of their 2018 premieres. Both films use re-enactment as a device to revisit moments in history – the former re-staging a 1978 boxing match and the latter imagining the final days of a sixteenth-century Italian Duke. The films are paired with the recently completed IFO, which, together with Round Seven, forms part of a body of work Everson is currently making about people, objects or elements from his hometown of Mansfield, Ohio, that have been represented in television, film or other popular media.”
Tate Modern’s feature on KJE’s films include a masterclass with the artist and a series of in-person conversations with theorist and scholar Kodwo Eshun.
Here is a recently published video interview with KJE.
