Presented at:
Hallwalls

WOMEN IN BLACK

WOMEN IN BLACK (Vince Mistretta, 50 min, 2003) Presented in person by media artist Vince Mistretta, also includes two other works WOMEN IN BLACK- NEW YORK CITY and SOLD

Ever since October 2001, when Women in Black peace-seekers started standing at the intersection of Elmwood Avenue and Bidwell Parkway every Saturday from noon to 1 p.m. (come rain, shine or verbal abuse), local artist Vince Mistretta has been there to document them. This premiere focuses on protests by WIB groups in both Buffalo and New York City, and manages to reveal the complexities, necessity, and impact of non-violent protest.  Representatives of the Buffalo arm of this international civil disobedience organization will be present to discuss Vince’s chronicle of the local and the global impact of the group.

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
