Screening and talk with Robin Greenspun and Tanja Hollander

Join the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art for a screening of Are You Really My Friend? The Movie  5 to 6 p.m., Sept. 18. A short Q & A will follow the screening with artist and executive producer Tanja Hollander and director Robin Greenspun.

Hollander is an artist who works with photography, video, social media, and data to understand cultural and visual relationships. From 2011-16, Hollander set out to differentiate the real from the virtual by photographing all of her 626 Facebook friends. Since then, she has been traveling internationally, setting up in-person meetings in her friends' homes to discover the ways in which friendship is defined and how permission is granted into one's private, yet very public, online life.

Along the way, Hollander has collected Post-It notes from communities around the globe answering the question: "What is a real friend?" The notes range from the silly to the profound. The Post-It notes are part of an exhibition, Are You Really My Friend? debuted in its entirety as an exhibition, short documentary, and book at MASS MoCA in 2017. The latest version is a new installation at the Delano through Sept. 22. Hollander’s interactive project is the featured work within the Delano Art Series, a rotating exhibition platform.
