Show & Tell: Hazel Katz Screening & Artist Talk

Originally Presented: Tuesday, May 17, 2022 | 6-7pm EST on Zoom
Presented as part of 4th Wall Film/Video Programming
Hosted by Lane Speidel

On Tuesday, May 17th at 6pm EST join Vox member Lane Speidel for a special edition of Show & Tell featuring an artist talk from our recent Black Box artist, Hazel Katz.

We will be screening Who Gets To Die, which was on view in Black Box for the April/May show. Following the film, Hazel will give an artist talk and Vox Member Lane Speidel will facilitate a Q&A.

Who Gets to Die is an essay film about death and dying in pop culture, prison, and the films of Hilary Swank. Hilary Swank is a vector whose roles in films like “Boys Don’t Cry” (1999) and “Million Dollar Baby” (2004) are part of a visual culture that posits representation as good-in-itself. The project is grounded in Jasbir Puar’s text “The Right to Maim” (2017), in which Puar describes how the state punishes some with death. For others the state makes living a halflife – often through debility – that’s a punishment for existing in the first place.

The film will be available to view on the Vox Website, along with the artist talk for one month following the initial screening.

Show & Tell is presented by Vox Populi’s Black Box Committee as part of our ongoing 4th Wall film/video program dedicated to showcasing new and experimental film/video works by independent, emerging, and early-career artists.
