Mark Boulos, All That Is Solid Melts into Air 2008
Sunday May 13 2012 10:30 - 17:30
Boulos's two-channel video installation, All That Is Solid Melts Into Air, contemplates the vicissitudes of the global oil economy by focusing on two groups on opposite ends of the petroleum spectrum: frenetic commodities traders at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, and a group of Nigerian fishermen who are also members of a militant movement opposed to the extraction of oil (among other environmental depredations) in the the Niger Delta.
