Permanent State of Exception at the AC Hotel
Allen Killian-Moore’s installation film “Permanent State of Exception,” will be featured as a projection in an abandoned storefront for the “Future: Made Here” group exhibition, opening at 5 p.m. May 4th in downtown Minneapolis, with music and a walking tour. Allen’s film was shot on black-and-white Super 8mm stock, and captures images of the present on a medium from the past, to evoke a possible future. It offers a cinematic meditation on the negative impacts of an unhindered free-market as they play out across our collective environmental or social landscape. The art-walk starts at the
AC Hotel – 401 Hennepin Avenue.
