Javier Téllez at Wellesley College

  • Collins Cinema 106 Central Street Wellesley, MA, 02481 United States (map)

Born in 1969 in Valencia, Venezuela, Javier Téllez is currently based in New York. As the son of two psychiatrists, he grew up around various forms of mental illness. He uses film, video, and installation to create works that question definitions of normality and pathology and examine the marginalization of those who exist outside of the societal constructions of normative psychological presentation.

Between Constructed and Imagined Spaces is our new visiting filmmaker screening and conversation series. Run in collaboration with the Cinema and Media Studies Department and the Art Department at Wellesley College, this series is made possible with support from the Rebecca Bacharach Treves Memorial Fund. For questions about the series, please contact Professor Claudia Joskowicz, cjoskowi@wellesley.edu.
