Ken Gonzales-Day’s short film Run Up, which re-enacts the lynching of Charles Valento in 1920, will be the starting point for a lively conversation about the history of photography, racial violence, and absent narratives. Our panel of local scholars and experts includes Yasufumi Nakamori (Curator of Photography & New Media, Mia), Chaun Webster (Poet), Taiyon Coleman (Assistant Professor, St. Catherine University), Alberto Justiniano (Artistic Director, Teatro del Pueblo). This event is co-presented by the M and the Saint Paul Public Library.

The event is related to the M’s ongoing exhibit, Ken Gonzales-Day: Shadowlands, on view in the Project Space through April 16, 2017. This program is free and open to the public.

The exhibition and its related programming are supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Minnesota State Arts Board, and the City of St. Paul’s Cultural STAR program.
