Recreational Meeting at UofL

Recreational Meeting & Artist Talk
Moving Image with Eduardo Williams
Thursday March 3, 2022

The Hite Institute of Art and Design is excited to host our first Recreational Meeting, a project by Stephen Kwok. Recreational Meetings invite participants to reimagine digital platforms and social formats through experimental and experiential exercises. Held on commonplace platforms such as Zoom, Facetime, and Google Drive and developed by Stephen Kwok in collaboration with creative practitioners from diverse fields, Recreational Meetings explore how distance may enable, rather than limit, engagement with our surroundings, ourselves, and each other.

For his virtual visit to UofL, Stephen Kwok will facilitate Recreational Meetings: Moving Image, a meeting developed in collaboration with experimental filmmaker Eduardo Williams. This walking, phone-based meeting, invites participants to explore and capture their surroundings in response to a series of creative prompts, a process that produces a collaborative multi-channel film.

 A screening and artist talk with Kwok will take place after the meeting. This Recreational meeting is limited to 30 participants, however the artist talk and screening are open to all! To register please visit this link
