Marte Eknæs and Michael Amstad: People Mover

Amstad Event

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

A program of three moving image works consisting of John Smith’s Blight (1994–96), Charles Atlas and Karole Armitage’s From An Island Summer (1983–84), and People Mover (2017) by Marte Eknæs and Michael Amstad. Utilizing distinct visual languages, the three films are connected through the topics of the constructed urban space, movement, and flexibility. The program is a journey through different emotional states and atmospheres, guided by each film’s compelling use of soundscapes and music. This program was curated by Eknæs and Amstad for Grüner Salon, Volksbühne in Berlin last March, and this is the first screening of People Mover in the US.

September 14, 7pm

This event is made possible with support from Lambent Foundation Fund of Tides Foundation and in part by public funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
