In his films, Kevin Jerome Everson explores poignant and profound moments that can be uncovered in the ordinariness of daily life. Drawing from his experiences growing up in the American Midwest, Everson examines black life at the intersection of class, race, and history. His films often incorporate found footage gathered from news media, film, and documentaries from the 1960s and 1970s, contextualizing his explorations of the every day. Following the screening of new and recent work, Everson will join director, producer and curator Maori Karmael Holmes in conversation.
