APPARITIONS IN THE CITY OF ANGELS
Curated By: Becca Keating & Mark Toscano
Poster Art By: Hayes Shanesy
Installation Art By: Joe Iannapollo
Though for some, the idea of Los Angeles conjures images of metal and concrete abominations rising hideously and incongruously from the desert (that’s actually Las Vegas), the reality couldn’t be more different. Los Angeles is beautiful, eclectic, and radically diverse in its natural and urban environment, and despite (or, more accurately, because of) the semi-pervasive presence of the commercial film industry, it also features a lively and robust cinematic avant-garde. These unique and unsummarizable qualities of the region have for decades given rise to wildly divergent aesthetic strategies in the moving image arts, and these two programs aim to cover some of that territory.
PROGRAM 2: ...AND LET IT FLOAT
Saturday, August 29, 2015
Program 2, comprising four films, is centered around Pat O’Neill’s absolutely essential and award-winning classic, Water and Power, in which an utterly unpredictable series of surreal vignettes are woven together in complex optical collages to paint a portrait of a major metropolis and its disproportionate dependence on energies it doesn’t necessarily have. O’Neill’s film will be supported by a psychedelic abstraction from Joshua Gen Solondz, Daniel Brantley’s hypnotic, kinetic music video for Sun Araw, and a radical animation from the legendary Suzan Pitt. If you’ve ever wanted to see an aerial time-lapse view of the Los Angeles marathon set to music by Albert Ayler, then you don’t want to miss this program.
Artists screening in this program:
Suzan Pitt, Joshua Gen Solondz, Daniel Brantley, Pat O’Neill.
