Exhibition of expanded cinema, performance, sculpture and installation art with works by 25 artists
MONO NO AWARE VII is an annual festival that exhibits work that is one part live celluloid projection, and one part live performance element, placing the focus on the connectivity of the cinematic experience. With the increase of media and devices (cell phones, laptops, even taxicabs have streaming content!) the viewing experience has become singular and passive. Our annual program is counter-culture to the accessibility of digital media emphasizing connectivity through cinema.
In 2012 our sixth annual event presented 14 unique works attracting an audience of over 550 at LightSpace Studios in Bushwick. This year we’ll present 17 works over the course of 2 nights by 25 international artists who incorporate Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm, and altered light into performance, installation and sculpture.
PROGRAM 2 – SATURDAY DECEMBER 6TH will present the work of: MARY STARK (MANCHESTER, UK) + MIKE FLEMING (ALFRED, NY) + CHRIS BERNTSEN & NICK KLEIN (BROOKLYN, NY) + ELISEO ORTIZ (BUFFALO, NY) + KURT RALSKE, MIRIAM ATKIN & DANIEL CARTER (BROOKLYN, NY) + LAURA BARTCZAK, PAIGE FREDLUND & MARK DEMOLAR (BROOKLYN, NY) + MARGARET RORISON (BALTIMORE, MD) & JOSH MILLROD (BROOKLYN, NY) + SYLVAIN CHAUSSÉE & ADRIAN COOKE (TORONTO, CANADA) + MORE!
In addition to the program itself, we’ve also got a great line-up of DJs (Sal P of Liquid Liquid, Jan Woo of Vibes Management), a host of delicious beverages/snacks from our sponsors (David Lynch’s Organic Coffee, Brooklyn Brewery, Raw Rev, Route 11 chips ) and amazing raffle items from Impossible Project and Lomography.
The event is December 6th & 7th beginning at 7 pm both nights. It’s FREE to attend, and will be hosted by LightSpace Studios 1115 Flushing Ave (Morgan L, Myrtle JMZ). The FULL PROGRAM with artist biographies, film descriptions, and more here: http://mononoawarefilm.com/event/mna-2013/
