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 1: HIT THAT LONG LUNAR NOTE…
Thursday, August 27, 2015
Program 1 is composed entirely of 16mm films showing in their original format. Half historical, half contemporary, this selection features some major classics from the likes of Thom Andersen, Chick Strand, and Pat O’Neill alongside modern pieces from some of the most uniquely voiced talents Los Angeles currently has to offer. Among many other things, this program will feature a desert tuba ceremony, a cat show, shaving cream chemtrails, floating angel heads, and The Rolling Stones.
Showing the work of: Chick Strand, Daina Krumins, Pat O’Neill, Alee Peoples, Andrew Kim, Charlotte Pryce, Laida Lertxundi, Thom Andersen.
