This event has ended.

The museum presents the first solo exhibition in the United States of Berlin-based artist Haris Epaminonda.

Epaminonda is internationally known for her photographic assemblages constructed from found books and magazines of the 1960s, and for her video installations, in which television footage culled from Greek soap operas that she used to watch as a child on Sunday afternoons in Cyprus, are reshot and re–edited in new sequences, creating a web of elusive associations. This exhibition presents Epaminonda's three–channel video installation "Tarahi IIII, V, VI" (2007), part of an ongoing series that enlists the use of reverse shooting, montage, cuts, superimposition, and repetition of motifs to address the permeability of memory.
