DISPLACEMENT: Cinema out of site
August 7-9, 2009
Colorado Springs, Colorado

DISPLACEMENT: Cinema out of site Displacement is the perfect marriage of a
program and a project. The program, AWOL: Art Without Limits is about
creating new forums for discussion on art through site-specific
installations, happenings and non- traditional exhibition spaces. The
project, Displacement, is a conversation based on the art of displaced
cinema. Both the program and project value the importance and effect of
space, and both challenge traditional expectations of what an exhibition
site can and should be. This project, a collaboration between GOCA and TIE,
The International Experimental Cinema Exposition, will be presented on the
top floor of the Kiowa & Nevada parking garage in downtown Colorado Springs,
Colorado. Lectures will be offered at the FAC Modern to further explore the
discourse of expanded (or displaced) cinema, aural experimentation,
spectatorship, the recontectualization of found- footage, and parkour (the
art of movement).

Displacement: Cinema out of site is collaboration and presentation of film
works by contemporary Argentine and North American avant-gardists to
encourage an intercontinental dialogue between artists. These artists,
writers and curators are presenting moving image and sound creations on the
concrete structure of a public parking garage. To understand the
presentation and its relationship to parkour we must understand
displacement. Rachel Cole, a participating artist, wrote "Place isn't lost,
it is rather "displaced," undone, emptied of meaning of itself, a location
without linear measurement." Displaced is not misplaced. The cinema and this
program are not lost; instead they have been stripped of popular
expectations for what they should be. Many would say art should be in a
gallery and film in a theater. This project uses an existing space, urban
architecture, to redefine the viewer’s experience of the work presented.

Participants include: Pablo Marin (filmmaker/lecturer) Jesse Kennedy
(filmmaker) Rachel Cole (lecturer) Christopher May (filmmaker/lecturer/co-
curator) Dan Mancini (lecturer) Jimmy Gable (lecturer) Gregg (aural
installation/ lecturer) Caitlin Green (co-curator)

Submission Form:

TIE seeks films that challenge popular and conventional modes of the moving
image. From difficult and hand-made films to extraordinarily radical and
obscure compositions, TIE selects only outstanding celluloid cinema from the
outer-spaces of contemporary screen-culture. If a submitted film is
selected, the exhibition print must be film (8mm, Super-8, 9.5mm, 16mm,
35mm). All lengths are considered. Films from any era and year of completion
are considered. A nominal entry fee is required.
