QUEER|ART|FILM: Jon Wang presents SLIVER
Monday, September 17, 8pm — IFC Center 
Dear Friends,

Join us for the first screening of our fall season of QUEER|ART|FILM, curated by filmmakers Ira Sachs, Adam Baran, and Vanessa Haroutunian! This month, we welcome visual artist and filmmaker Jon Wang to present Phillip Noyce's SLIVER.

WHAT:   Jon Wang presents SLIVER
WHEN:    Monday, September 17, 8PM
WHERE:   IFC Center - 323 6th Ave at W. 3rd St.


1993. US. Directed by Phillip Noyce. 
“The view from the outside is nothing compared to the view from the inside,” teased the trailer for this 1993 erotic thriller starring it-girl Sharon Stone as Carly.  Following a recent divorce, Carly moves into the elite Sliver building and becomes entangled in an intrigue involving a pair of suitors, a suspicious suicide, and a stranger who spies on her via hidden cameras. For artist Jon Wang, a secret VHS viewing of the film provided his first erotic cinematic memory: “Since I was homeschooled and raised in a cultish conservative Chinese immigrant was moments like this, alone in other people’s homes, where I caught glimpses of the outside world.”

Jon Wang is a New York based artist and filmmaker whose work has been exhibited and screened at SculptureCenter, New York; Petzel Gallery, New York; Images Festival, Toronto; Triple Canopy, New York; Anonymous Gallery, Mexico City; Metropolitan Structures, Baltimore; Night Gallery, Los Angeles; Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, New Paltz, NY; Centre for African Studies Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa; The Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive, Berkeley, CA. He has received numerous grants and awards including the Ella Lyman Cabot Trust Grant and The Theresa Hak Kyung Cha Award (BAMPFA). Wang holds BA’s in Art Practice and Social Anthropology from the University of California, Berkeley.
