  • Olivia Boudreau: Intervals

    By on

    Olivia Boudreau’s videos, films, and performance works inspire reflections on the experience of time and the act of perception. The Montreal-based artist carefully choreographs precise shots of long duration in works such as L’étuve (2011), where a group of women appear and disappear as dense vaporous clouds slowly fill a steam room. Her more recent works, including Femme allongée (2014), make use of narrative structure and editing. A woman draped in a white sheet lies immobile on a table.

  • Found Sounds: Barbara Meter’s Avant-Garde Films

    By on

    In the early 1970s, Dutch filmmaker Barbara Meter co-founded the Electric Cinema, to present and produce independent and avant-garde film. She made fiction films, political documentaries, and then moved to avant-garde film, pushing the medium forward with her unique way of repurposing documents and audio recordings, and with an innovative, masterful application of optical printing techniques. Meter manipulates the images and reworks found sounds to find and create a personal expressive mode. With film prints lovingly restored by the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, FOUND SOUNDS is the first comprehensive retrospective of Barbara Meter’s avant-garde films in the United States.

    Organized and introduced by guest curator Mónica Savirón.
