I thought some NY based frameworkers might find these screenings
interesting. There are screenings tonight, tomorrow and tuesday.
MOVIES WITHOUT PICTURES
CURATED BY KRIST GRUIJTHUIJSEN AND GIANNI JETZER
Spanning several decades of work in film, video and cinema, MOVIES
WITHOUT PICTURES treats the blank screen as staging-ground for
subversive storytelling and genre-expanding experimentation. During
the 1960s and '70s, avant-garde filmmakers such as Paul Sharits and
Tony Conrad used the imageless frame to test the boundaries of the
cinematic experience. In dialogue with the structuralist films of the
past, artists today engage the blank screen in an effort to formulate
poignant visual statements, exploring narrative, its linguistic form
and political content, to question the sovereign power of the image.
