‘these are the days, my friends, these are the days’ is a film essay and multi media
art installation by ‘the line/assembled collective.’ It defies linear narratives, be they
political, historical or personal, pointing out the interrelation of global events that not
only impact and structure our daily experience, but raise questions of personal
responsibility in maintaining structures of knowledge. If we begin with the sugar crisis
and end with a bottle of champagne – what exactly happened in between? Can we
deconstruct our ways of performing knowledge? Perhaps we can begin to find questions
only when we allow all the complexities and implications to coexist.

The ‘these are the days, my friends, these are the days’ Film Screening, Artists
Talk and Reception will be held at the CFA Downtown Studio (113 4th St. NW) in
Albuquerque, NM on Thursday, January 25, 2018 from 5:30-8pm and is open to the
public. Light refreshments will be served.

The ‘these are the days, my friends, these are the days’ exhibition will be on
display at the CFA Downtown Studio (113 4th St. NW) in Albuquerque, NM from January
19 – February 7th, 2018. The CFA Downtown Studio gallery hours are Wednesdays and
Fridays 10:00 am – 6:00 pm or by appointment.
