An Evening of Appropriation and Experimental Animation, with short films by Lillian Schwartz, Toshio Matsumoto, Steve Cossman, LJ Frezza, Douglas Goodwin & Rebecca Baron.
Proteus Gowanus is happy to announce the first screening in the Migration Film & Video Series. This program of shorts includes films from two unique eras: the present and the 1970s. Both time periods were and continue to be turning points in the artistic use of the computer. With appropriated source material like Muybridge’s Running Man photographs, the Mona Lisa, or John Wayne’s peculiar performance as Ghengis Khan, these filmmakers transport visual data from the analog realm to the digital, and vice versa.
Proteus Gowanus is pleased to announce the upcoming Migration Film Series as a monthly feature of the Migration year. This monthly screening series will assemble the best of avant-garde, scientific, and bizarre documentary portraits of the Migrations occurring throughout our universe. It will feature recent and classic work by local and international visual artists. Each evening will be a unique experience featuring 16mm and video in both feature length and short format. The year’s selection will be programmed by Sean Hanley.
Our first screening, on November 1st, will feature Migratory Media: An Evening of Appropriation and Experimental Animation with short films by Lillian Schwartz, Toshio Matsumoto, Steve Cossman, LJ Frezza, Douglas Goodwin & Rebecca Baron.
