No Longer Showing.
For this special evening to benefit The Kitchen, Simone and Amedeo Pace of Blonde Redhead perform their original live score along with special guest Michael Leonhart to a program of experimental films selected by Molly Surno of Cinema 16, followed by cocktails and a DJ set by the Paces from their collection of classic Italo Disco.
8:00pm Screening and Live Performance
9–11pm Post-performance Party and DJ set
Tickets $50. ($40 tax-deductible)
The experimental films in this evening's program address issues of legacy, lifespan, and decay–both materially and conceptually. They include:
Norman McLauren, A Phantasy (1952)
Malcolm La Grice, Berlin Horse (1970)
Charles and Ray Eames, Power of Ten (1977)
Naomi Uman, Removed (1999)
Liz Rhodes, Dynamo Duo (1971)
Adam Beckett, Flesh Flows (1974)
Scott Bartlett, OffOn (1967)
Curated by artist Molly Surno, the Cinema 16 series was named after the New York-based, avant-garde film society of the same name founded by Amos and Marcia Vogel that existed from 1947 to 1963.
