APEX Arts to showcase video piece by Brittany DeNigris
Two time Susan Fund Recipient, Brittany DeNigris’ video will debut at the apexarts show, Life After Death and Elsewhere located at 291 Church Street, Manhattan. The exhibition features death-monuments and anti-monuments created by a group of death row inmates at Riverbend Maximum Security Prison in Nashville, Tennessee. Brittany DeNigris and Moses Williams, both MFA candidates at Carnegie-Mellon University have created a video exploration into the act of storytelling, creating meaning through place and metaphor, the power of utterence and the volume of voices required to tell a single individual’s pain. Underlying themes examine our current system of punishment. On October 7, Brittany and Moses will also be presenting an evening of live performance to enact the life stories of the prisoners.
Opening reception-Wednesday, September 9: 6-8 pm
