Aurora Picture Show presents "Esthetics and Politics; Labor and History — Recent Short Films by Kevin Jerome Everson"

Courtesy of the artist, trilobite-Arts DAC, Picture Palace Pictures

Kevin Jerome Everson has made an expansive body of work composed of more than 70 short-form pieces and five feature-length films that present images of the lives of black Americans through his own distinctive practice of cinematic portraiture — a blend of fiction and documentary that hones in on subjects of labor and leisure.

In a unique way Kevin Everson combines history, reality and form in films that focus on work and the essential role that African-Americans have played in the development of labor in the United States. His films are formal explorations grounded in historical, social, political and concrete reality.

This program presents a selection of Everson's short films curated by Margarita De la Vega-Hurtado.
