Cinema at the Center – Artist and Animal (1/2)

Co-presented with the Contemporary Arts Center in conjunction with the exhibition “Creatures”

Doors 6:15 PM / Start 6:45 PM @ CAC (44 E 6th St, Cincinnati, OH 45202)

This short film program is devoted to animals and artists in collaboration, allowing viewers to reflect on notions of agency in art. The series brings Steven Matijcio, former CAC Curator, back to town for a presentation of short films including Miguel Angel Rios’s Crudo, which, despite its short duration, opens the door to broad questions: the possible taming of animality and the self, alienation and cultured behaviors, the spectacle of violence, and the rawness of our being. (60 min)

Presented by Steven Matijcio, Director, Blaffer Art Museum, Houston and Curator of CAC exhibition Creatures


* The second screening in this two-part series, which will be a tribute to Carolee Schneemann, occurs on June 27th, 2019. More info here:
