Event Details

In conjunction with his solo exhibition GAMES ARE FORBIDDEN IN THE LABYRINTHartist Javier Téllez has selected two historic films that connect to issues of confinement and dislocation present within the exhibition.

Titicut Follies (1967) is an American documentary film directed by Frederick Wiseman about the patient-inmates of Bridgewater State Hospital for the criminally insane, a correctional institution located in Bridgewater, Massachusetts.

Les maîtres fous (The Mad Masters) (1955) is a short film directed by French director and ethnologist Jean Rouch about the Hauka movement, a religious movement rooted in French Colonial Africa in which individuals performed the military ceremonies of their occupiers.

Games Are Forbidden in the Labyrinth is on view in the Walter and McBean Galleries at SFAI September 9–December 13, 2014.
