More Cities: New and Selected Video Works
AboutChristopher McNamara has been described as one of Detroit's international itinerant cultural workers. This new installation of video dioramas and retrospective screening offers up an overview of his work over the past five years. In all of these works there is a concern for language (cinematic, textual, spoken and convergent). Looking at them collectively there emerges a case for the collapsing of borders, while simultaneously begging reconsideration and questioning of the utopian concepts of internationalism. Christopher McNamara's work has been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Canada, USA, Germany and Switzerland. His videos have been featured in a number of festivals including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, Media City and the Independent Film Festival of Boston.
