On Screen: François Bucher

Tuesday, Feb. 04, 2020    7–9pm

What kind of stories can be told when we unravel history’s familiar threads? François Bucher’s films, The Man Who Disappeared (2011) and Fractal Access Totems (2012), ask viewers to question the fabric of knowledge, including the linearity of time, the organization of space, and the entanglement of seemingly disparate histories. In Bucher’s hands, moving image media are portals to multiverses, real and imagined⁠—join us in thinking widely, and wildly, across disciplines, archives, and histories. These films are exhibited as part of Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections, on view at the MSU Broad January 25 – August 23, 2020.

Never Spoken Again: Rogue Stories of Science and Collections is a traveling exhibition curated by David Ayala-Alfonso and produced by Independent Curators International (ICI). It is the result of a new series of programs, pioneered with the support of the Hartfield Foundation, aimed at providing opportunities to alumni of ICI’s Curatorial Intensive as they move through the stages of their career, and reflecting ICI’s commitment to fostering and championing new curatorial voices who will shape the future of the field. Never Spoken Again is made possible with the generous support of ICI’s Board of Trustees and International Forum, with additional support from SAHA. Support for this project at the MSU Broad comes from the Eli and Edythe Broad endowed exhibitions fund.

Plan to arrive early to check out the galleries before this event! Our galleries close to the public at 7pm.

This event will be located in the Alan and Rebecca Ross Education Wing.
