- ST. AUGUSTINE — Artist, writer and film curator Carolyn Lazard and Crisp-Ellert Art Museum artist-in-residence Staci Bu Shea will host a screening of Nicolas Philibert’s “Every Little Thing” (1996) on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m., followed by a discussion with Lazard via Skype. The event will take place in Kenan Hall, Room 300, at Flagler College. Both events are free and open to the public.
Philibert’s film takes place during the summer of 1995. Residents and staff at the La Borde psychiatric clinic in Loire Valley organize to perform a Polish operetta. Curator Lazard works in media and performance. Her work engages collective practice to address the ethics of wellness, dependency and labor. She has presented work in various spaces including Light Industry, the Poetry Project, Recess, Anthology Film Archives, the Arnolfini, and the New Museum. Lazard has published writing in the Brooklyn Rail and Mousse magazine. She is a founding member of the art collective Canaries (women and femme artists living with chronic illness) and the Harriet Tubman Collective, “a collective of Black Deaf and Black Disabled organizers.” She holds a bachelor’s degree from Bard College and lives in Philadelphia.
Bu Shea has organized a film program as part of the CEAM residency titled “The shape of my kin networks looks more like a trellis or an esplanade than a tree.” The program is titled after a line from Donna Haraway’s “The Companion Species Manifesto,” a book that Bu Shea is continuously rereading throughout the residency, to emphasize the weaving of relationships, practices and objects as an organizing form and methodology.
The program consists of three screenings across February, March and April, and includes special invited guests to speak about each film. Future screenings and invited guests will be announced soon. For more information about Bu Shea’s residency, please visit here.
Kenan 300, where the movie will be screened, is on the third floor of Kenan Hall, 74 King Street. It is wheelchair accessible via the elevator. This space is not scent-free, but we do ask that attendees come fragrance-free. There is a single stall restroom available on the third floor, that is wheelchair accessible as well.
The film is in French with English subtitles. If you require ASL interpretation for the conversation portion of the program, or have any other access needs, please contact Julie Dickover by 3 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17 at firstname.lastname@example.org.
