Femme Fantastique: Series of Fantastic films by Fantastic Femme Filmmakers

Feb. 28

 

Refusing to rationalize the female body and the phenomenological experiences found within, the films in this program aim to provoke both desire and fear. Moving between identifiable locations like the Lower East Side and the pure fantasy of ritual, what may appear everyday and mundane can change quickly into the unrecognizable. Propelled by belief in the mystical, the power of melodrama, and the overriding influence of affect, a gothic sensibility imbues these films’ ambiguous territories and their strange discoveries.

MAKE, BELIEVE: THE MASLOW COLLECTION AND THE MOVING IMAGE

January 26 - March 21, 2018

 

Make, Believe generates a dialogue between the work of artists in The Maslow Collection and artists working with the moving image. The films and videos of Basma Alsharif, Nazlı Dinçel, Julie Harrison & Neil Zusman, David Haxton and M.M. Serra all, in their respective ways, interrogate the notion of the acceptance of reality.
