Alternative Testimony Opening Reception - 6PM - 8PM

David Klein Gallery (1520 Washington blvd, Detroit)

David Klein Gallery is pleased to present "Alternative Testimony", an exhibition of photographs by Cyrus Karimipour, Brittany Nelson, Aspen Mays, and Meghann Riepenhoff.

The four artists in this exhibition are unique in their practices, but share a limitless curiosity and a habit of experimenting with traditional and historical photographic processes in alternative ways. Early 19th century techniques, such as photogram, cyanotype, mordancage, and bromoil, are employed by all of these artists and, in some cases, used in conjunction with contemporary tools to achieve the desired results.

Pain and Glory (Screening) - 7PM

The Film Lab (3105 Holbrook Ave, Hamtramck)

PAIN AND GLORY tells of a series of re-encounters experienced by Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas), a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void created by the incapacity to keep on making films. PAIN AND GLORY talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.
