At Untitled, San Francisco, curators Ashley Carr and Suzanne Modica present a video program called A Light Shines Through, featuring video work by artists including Andrea Bowers, Barbara Hammer, William E. Jones, Korpys/Löffler, Lars Laumann, Maggie Lee, Goshka Macuga, Melvin Moti, Mario Pfeifer, Martha Rosler, Tobias Spichtig, Hank Willis Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, Judi Werthein.

The last few years have seen worldwide upheaval, with conflicts over politics, economics, religion, race, sexual identity and social issues roiling our communities. In moments like this, when our environment feels tenuous, or even threatening, it is more important than ever that artists create work that responds to these conditions. With this in mind, we are presenting a diverse selection of videos primarily from the last decade that touch upon immigration, global and local economies, the war on terror, and personal loss, among other themes.
