Lamia Abukhadra

Lamia Abukhadra Profiled in MN Daily

Lamia Abukhadra is many things: smart, savvy, creative and politically aware. She is one of few Palestinian-American artists in Minneapolis — something that gives her pride and has helped shape her identity. Abukhadra’s thought-provoking art explores her family history and dissects structures of colonialism that eventually forced her family out of Palestine.
Frederick Wiseman - Monrovia, Indiana

Professor Paul Shambroom in Conversation with Frederick Wiseman

As in many of his earlier works, Frederick Wiseman takes a long, slow, immersive look—without commentary, without interrupting—in his newest documentary, a portrait of life in a rural town, population 1,083, in central Indiana. In anticipation of the November 2–3 screening of Wiseman’s Monrovia, Indiana, we turned to another master of the slow look, Twin Cities–based photographer Paul Shambroom. A Walker collection artist, Shambroom has offered nuanced views of some deceptively banal-seeming topics, from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve to domestic nuclear weapons facilities to, most fitting for an examination of Wiseman’s documentary films, municipal meetings in small-town America. Here, their recent conversation.

Tamsie Ringler - River Lee Project

Tamsie Ringler Pours Iron in Ireland

From its source in the Shehy Mountains on the Cork-Kerry border to where it empties into the Irish Sea at Cork Harbour, the River Lee embodies over 5000 years of human habitation and experience. Tamsie Ringler’s River Lee Project focuses on the importance of the River Lee to the daily life and heritage of Cork City and its surrounding areas. Iron is an elemental metal that signifies our connection with the world on a primal level. It runs through our bloodstream in much the same way as rivers run through our landscape. With the looming threat of flood-walls around Cork City, the River Lee Project represents our physical and emotional connection to our rivers and the importance of maintaining that connection.
