Featured Screening: Arts Festival Weekend
It is too pleasant outside to devote too much time to the Screen Slate writeup or to expect one would want to spend time reading it. So in brief:
The Armory Show officially opened today, and there are a deluge of related art events accompanying it. The main film and video programming, which runs 5:00 to 8:00 pm through Saturday and 4:00 to 7:00 pm Sunday is presented along with the Moving Image Fair at Pier 94. The Moving Image opening reception is 6:00 to 8:00 pm tonight, and there are three panels through the weekend including EAI’s Lori Zippay on video preservation tomorrow at 5:00 pm; and Moving Image Technology of Tomorrow at noon Saturday followed by What Do You Get When You Buy Video Art? at 2:00 pm. Additionally, Artprojx will have programming at the SVA Theatre through Sunday including Luke Fowler and Finnish artists presented in association with AV arkki. Dirty Looks will have a booth alongside several video-friendly contemporary galleries at the Dependent art fair Saturday, and there is of course the Independent fair, a FREE Armory companion festival that consistently garners good favor each year. And check out Saturday‘s listings for links to a good deal of things happening in Brooklyn including Bushwick Beat Nite and Williamsburg Afterhours, each of which include various video, site-specific and expanded cinema happenings.
Two more Brooklyn things highly recommended in the meantime: Spectacle Theater‘s Middletown series concludes with Seventeen, notoriously unflinching and empathetic chronicle of midwestern high school life that was banned from initial broadcast on PBS. This is roundly described as one of the greatest documentaries and youth films by people who have seen it—so don’t miss out! And Lynne Sachs presents her latest, My Day is Your Night, at Arts@Rennaisance tonight. This cross-cultural, transmedia, live screening event encompasses the experiences of Puerto Rican and Chinese immigrants, who participate tonight as live performers.
