This spring the Integrated Electronic Arts MFA program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute presents a show of provocative videos and installations ranging from the personal to the political. MaFiA features a new documentary about Femicide in Cuidad Juárez, Mexico and another about women’s experiences with abortion since Roe v. Wade. Other works study “integration and estrangement in different political and cultural environments” using video blue screen techniques. A collective project of photographic and cartographic documentation "demarcating sites of invisible boundaries of social fluidity” in the City of Troy, and a sound installation exploring personal loss through the lens of American shape note music. The show also features a performance of improvised music, a study of “trilingual architectures and skinz” and a graffiti-writing robot. Guest Art Critics: Ian Berry (Tang Museum curator) and Leah Gilliam (filmmaker, professor at Bard) Participants in the show include Zulma Aguiar, Carrie Dashow, Caterina De Re, b.lo.c., Kyra Garrigue, Yael Kanarek, Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg, Daniela Kostova, and Penny Lane.
