June 7 – 9 Screenings of Short Films on Celluloid« Back to Events
Asheville Art Museum is delighted to partner with Mechanical Eye Microcinema this weekend to bring Museum audiences a selection of independent and experimental “cameraless” films. A cameraless film is made by creating images directly on film stock. This can be done by painting and/or drawing directly on film stock or by scraping/scratching the emulsion or by other chemical or non-chemical manipulations of the film.
To kick the weekend off we will screen a multi-projector extravaganza live performance called “No Cameras, Lots of Projectors” by Florida-based filmmakers Roger Beebe, Nick Mendez and Robert Edmonson. This screening will take place in the Museum’s East Wing New Media Gallery at 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 7.
On Saturday and Sunday, cameraless films and videos by Jodie Mack, Ben Popp, Scott Fitzpatrick, Kelly Gallagher, Joshua Solondz, Devon Damonte, Gregg Biermann, Matt Gossett, Lauren Cook, and others, with a special showing of Madame Winger Makes a Film by Helen Hill, will be screened in the New Media Gallery at various times throughout the weekend.
Saturday, June 8 screenings at 12:00 noon and 2:00 p.m.
Sunday, June 9 screenings at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Admission to view featured films is $5 for Museum members and $6 + regular Museum admission for non-members.
