Tonight Microscope Gallery hosts Midwaste: Film & Video from the Rusted Corn Belt, a show curated by artist Lexie Stoia. She features in the show along with work from earcatcher, Derek Fansler, Will Foster, Pelham Johnston, Jim Kokai, Jodie Mack, Kon Pet Moon, Hunter Preston, Brandon Reichard, Liz Roberts (above), and Scott Wolniak.
Per the description, the show includes works that “embraced the ‘nowhere-ness’ of the Midwest and the creative liberation that comes out of surrendering to it.” Among them, Kon Pet Moon takes a digital cut-and-paste approach to chronicling the Cleveland poet d.a. levy, animator Jodie Mack produces a flurry of graphic abstraction from junk mail and security envelopes, and Liz Roberts produces a portrait of “The Abyss,” an Iowa City party full of “mud, bands, and booze,” circa 1993. The screening component, which features work ranging from 1972 to present, is accompnied by Stoia’s own installation in the gallery’s restroom.
Midwaste runs approximately 60 minutes, and doors open at 7:00 pm.
Yasujiro Ozu‘s melancholic Tokyo Twilight returns on 35mm at Film Forum. It tells the story of domestic and wider familial discord in the lives of two sisters, who discover their estranged mother is living nearby.
Travis Wilkerson‘s quietly arresting film essay An Injury to One has its final screening at Spectacle tonight. Accompanied by a subdued soundtrack from Will Oldham, Jim O’Rourke, and Low, it offers history and speculations on the unsolved murder of Wobbly labor organizer Frank Little, who led workers against the exploitative grip of the Anaconda Mining Company in Butte, Montana. An Injury to One shows at 10:00 pm.
It has been asked whether I am intentionally omitting MoMA’s contemporary Warner Bros. series, which features the entire Matrix, Nolan Batman, and Harry Potter series, as well as the movie Clint Eastwood released shortly after appearing on the stage of the Republican National Convention speaking to an empty chair as if it were President Barack Obama. The response is, yes.
