Fridays Film Nights in January
Money and Influence
Guest curated by Jayna Swartzman
In response to ASC’s current exhibition, Live/Work, the three films selected for Money and Influence profile the ways in which artists reconcile competing interests within their practice as an occupation, an ontology, a lifestyle, or an identity.
