If you are in western New York this weekend, please consider visiting
Buffalo this coming Saturday for a screening with Michael Snow.
Beyond/In Western New York (Buffalo's Regional Biennale) and
Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center Present:
An Evening with Michael Snow
Sat. October 13th, 7pm
We are proud to welcome the first filmmaker to ever visit Hallwalls(January,
1975), pioneering media artist Michael Snow. This screening will feature
three recent films and videos selected by the artist: THE LIVING ROOM;
TRIAGE; and REVERBERLIN.
THE LIVING ROOM (2000), is a digital short which "dramatizes and multiplies
chosen manifestations and implications of 'On/Off' and/or
'Absence/Presence'" (Canyon Cinema). The 16mm double projection film TRIAGE
(2004) was made in collaboration with Canadian filmmaker Carl Brown. A
filmic Exquisite Corpse, neither Brown nor Snow knew what each other had
filmed, nor did musician John Kamevaar who composed a two-channel soundtrack
in a similar method. Snow's experiments in sound and image are also
evidenced in the feature length REVERBERLIN (2006). Using concert footage of
CCMC, the free improvisational ensemble Snow co-founded in 1974, Snow
digitally weaves together images and sounds from performances that have
taken place across the globe.
Also part of Beyond/In is Snow¹s, SSHTOORTY, on view at the Albright Knox
Art Gallery until October 28th. For more information, please visit
