Specific Dates: September 15, 22, and 29, 2006
This experimental film, video and new media series is held three-times each year, on select Friday evenings in Atkins Auditorium. Each thematic series extends over three Friday nights and offers viewers a chance to explore works by world-renowned artists. Tickets are free to the public.
The Fall 2006 series is called Future Past and explores the subject of time. Photographs, films, videos and DVDs all represent and mediate time while preserving the past and forming the future. Each program begins at 7 p.m.
Sept. 15: Four works by Bill Morrison, who uses deteriorating emulsions of film footage from various archives to create films whose future was almost past.
Sept. 22: The examination of the materialization of time through film continues in this second evening of Future Past with works by Michael Snow, Anri Sala, William Kentridge and Tacita Dean.
Sept. 29: As one of the world’s most highly acclaimed experimental filmmakers, Canadian artist Michael Snow is a true Renaissance man—filmmaker, musician, visual artist, composer, writer and sculptor. Join us for the final evening of Future Past, where he will present his 2002 pictorial and musical phenomenon, *Corpus Callosum.
Curated by Patrick Clancy and Gwen Widmer. Electromediascope is supported by the Rheta A. Sosland Fund and is part of Ford Free Fridays.
