Screen Series: Rodrigo Valenzuela
May 21 - July 21, 2019
In his videos and photo-based works, Rodrigo Valenzuela addresses issues and experiences common to working-class people living in the United States, paying special attention to recent immigrants and those of Latinx heritage. He often works with nonactors on unscripted scenes, constructing his videos through an editing process that highlights the way individual and collective experiences exist in communion or in tension with one another. This presentation was part of the New Museum’s Screens Series, a platform for the presentation of new video works by emerging contemporary artists.
