"About Halfway Between West-Egg and New York" (Production Still) 2003
A film of mine will be screening at the The Amie and Tony James Gallery, The Graduate Center of The City University of New York 365 Fifth Avenue at 35th Street. It runs from April 13-27th.
Curated by Linda Norden
March 2 – April 26, Nightly 5:00 PM – 10 PM
The James Gallery's "Walk-By Movies," visible and audible only from the street, presents an urban, pedestrian version of the drive-in theater. On the heavily trafficked corner of Fifth Avenue and 35th Street, a curated series of films and video programs will be projected onto the gallery wall starting at 5:00 p.m. nightly. Building on the audience of street viewers attracted to the exhibition “People ‘Weekly’,” the new series further explores the windowed, street-level location of the gallery. Conceptually, "Walk-By Movies" addresses a longstanding dilemma faced by artists and curators: museum-goers cannot be expected to sit through a film or video in its entirety. By showing works that lend themselves to delimited viewing, while embracing the distinctly urban habits of window shopping and strolling, “Walk-By Movies” provides both a novel method of exhibiting contemporary film and video and a unique public art experience.
