SUN 10/23
Curated by Rachael Morrison
Admissionn $6
approximately 50 minutes

Rachael Morrison’s works have been presented in several Microscope programs
over the last year including the group shows *The Internet is a Terrible
Place to Live *curated by Jesse Malmed, the *BOS Film Festival, we presented
as *part of the Bushwick Open Studios, and *Bushwick in the Box* exhibition
that we curated at White Box art space (NYC) in August. This time, however,
she joins us as a curator, bringing a selection of “weird scientific shorts”
made in the 50s.

“*Weird Science* is an evening of short films selected from the Prelinger
Archives on science, technology, medicine, and industry. Produced in America
around the middle of the 20th Century, these films offer a glimpse into the
past when scientific innovation was met with great optimism and fear. The
program includes educational, corporate, and institutional films, as well as
commercials and animation. ” – - R M
