MARATHON SCREENINGS is a series of salon-style film & video presentations that invites international and LA-based artists to share their work and engage in meaningful dialogue. Taking place at a private residence or artist-run space, each screening begins or ends with a communal dinner. Highlighting minority voices with an emphasis on women and artists of color, the program includes films that range from short, conceptual videos to feature-length experimental documentaries, as well as performances and lectures. Intimate and thoughtful, the gatherings allow for invited artists to connect with attending participants and generate critical discussions about individual identity, representation, and historical consciousness in a shifting geopolitical landscape.
The series is organized by LA-based independent curator Asha Bukojemsky.
