Mapping Subjectivity: A Conversation with Filmmaker Ali Cherri

In the video interview above, artist Ali Cherri describes the conceptual approach framing his exhibition Bad, Bad, Images, that opened this past winter in Paris. Pipe Dreams was “extracted” from this exhibition installation, and here the artist explains how he came to transform a two-channel video installation into single-channel video. Living and working between Beirut and Paris, Cherri is one of today’s most prominent emerging Middle Eastern artists.

Pipe Dreams will be screened on Wednesday, November 21, in MoMA’s Theater 2 at 4:00 p.m. as part of the film exhibition Mapping Subjectivity: Experimentation in Arab Cinema from the 1960s to Now, Part III , the third and final installment of MoMA’s exploration of Arab cinema, which runs through November 25.
