RIDM x UNDO: Caroline Monnet

Screening, Masterclass & Mixer with RIDM and Caroline Monnet

We are thrilled to welcome RIDM (Montreal International Documentary Film Festival) back for two nights this July to take over UnionDocs with work from multidisciplinary artist Caroline Monnet! This year we’re teaming up to present a program of short works: (AUTO)PORTRAITS, DOCUMENTS, FICTIONS, EXPLORATIONS and a masterclass that will take us on a deep dive into Monnet’s work . Both nights will include social mixers, where local filmmakers can meet folks from RIDM.


Short work screening (followed by cocktail mixer)

Thursday, July 11 – 7:30PM - 11:30PM

Including a variety of NYC premieres, this program of short work showcases Monnet’s sharp examinations of indigenous cultural identity and histories.

Stick around after the screening to get to know more about RIDM, meet the team, hang out in our backyard and enjoy complimentary craft beers courtesy of Le Trou du diable, and Dieu du ciel.

Masterclass (followed by Discussion + BBQ)

Friday, July 12 – 7:00PM - 11:30PM

Minimalism and Abstraction: Identity through Bicultural History

Join Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Caroline Monnet for a masterclass exploring her process of continual experimentation. Though this program is complimented by her presence in the 2019 Whitney Biennial and an Arsenal Contemporary show opening July 9, her international exhibition history is one with few instances in New York. Monnet examines bicultural living and the beautifully intricate limbo of indigenous peoples today. Known for a minimalistic yet emotionally charged style, she often works with industrial materials, creating hybrid forms situated between the vocabulary of traditional visual cultures and modernist abstraction.

Stick around after the screening for a discussion and BBQ in our backyard, with the change to get to know more about RIDM, UnionDocs and Caroline Monnet!
