David Kordansky Gallery has announced an exhibition of new work by William E. Jones. The exhibition will open on February 12 and run through March 26. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, February 12 from 6:00 to 9:00pm. William E. Jones is an artist, filmmaker, photographer and writer known for using appropriation, documentary and historical research to call attention to the inextricable relationships between images and power.
In recent years his focus has shifted away from the production of films made to be screened in cinemas, and towards gallery-based works of extreme and concentrated visual impact. The exhibition will consist of three new movies, as well as two new print-based works, that investigate the roles of film and photography during moments of cultural upheaval
