Virtual Event

Co-director Julie Perini ’00 and Sabrina Karim (Govt) discuss the film Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon

Media activist and Cornell alum Julie Perini ’00 creates experimental and documentary videos/films, installations, community-based media projects, and live events. In 2015, she and two co-directors released Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon, which in recent months has taken on even more resonance. Join Julie and Sabrina Karim, assistant professor of government at Cornell University, who is an international expert on police reform, for a discussion of the film after viewing it for free. 

Perini’s work focuses on relationships between politics and aesthetics, identity and representation, and the everyday. Julie exhibits her work internationally and has had several artist residencies at Yaddo, Byrdcliffe, and Signal Fire. She has received grants and fellowships in support of her work from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and The Regional Arts and Culture Council. Her writing has been published by A.K. Press, Afterimage, and INCITE: The Journal of Experimental Media. Perini holds an MFA from the Department of Media Study at the University at Buffalo and a BS in Communication from Cornell University. She is an Associate Professor in Art Practices and Video & Time-Based Media at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon.
