Sorry about this. We missed getting this to the list in time.

Today! An Evening Filled With Us
video program by JESSIE STEAD
approximately 60 minutes
Microscope Gallery (Bushwick, Brooklyn)
Admission $6

Microscope Gallery has invited New York artist Jessie Stead to the space
for an evening of her moving image works. She has chosen to show an
unprecedented full program of episodes from her "sublimely intermittent
epic" TODAY!. Titles will include the long lost "Mystique Lounge" episode
and the trans-India/Manhattan bank caper known colloquially as "Chase
Scenes". Also screening will be the infamous "You Are Now Running On
Reserve Battery Power", a desktop noir from our late-nite spin-off Today!
Nocturnes launched in the fall of 2011. Plus other surprise delights!
Today! is not on the internet!

Quotes about "Today!"

The last film I saw had mandarin elegance and homespun fancy; a travelogue
of clamdigging, Mayan seafarers hitching home on formica seahorses and
making fun of effervescent containers and all matters postal. If this film
pertains to you clap your hands and say yeah.
--Mark McElhatten, film curator, NY

Jessie Stead's sublimely intermittent epic Today! plays as episodes in an
open-ended and wide-eyed adventure series, accumulating meaning even as it
becomes increasingly mysterious.
--Steve Polta, San Francisco Cinematheque

Jessie Stead lives and works in NYC. With a mercurial conceptual focus her
cross-disciplinary productions adhere seemingly disconnected subject
matter, formal strategies, material experiments, and the work of fellow
artists. Stead's single channel motion-pictures, installations and
performances have been featured at mixed venues internationally, including
the Greater New York Cinema exhibition at MoMA PS1, the New York Film
Festival, Soloway Gallery and Performa 11.
