Screening of Sondra Perry's It's in the Game '17

Working primarily with video, computer-based media, and performance, Sondra Perry's interest lies in the relationship between identities and the digital realm; specifically in what she refers to as the "abstraction of subjecthood" that occurs in technologically-rendered images of blackness. Her work seeks to interrogate and elucidate the role of digital technology in the systematic oppression of black identities. In It's in the Game '17, Perry meditates on the involvement of her twin brother in the class action suit O'Bannon versus the NCAA in which college athletes challenged the sale of their names images and likeness to video game manufacturer EA Sports without their consent.
