What is life without the living? Thursday October 21st, 20h NP Contemporary Art Center 131 Chrystie Street, New York, NY 10003-2813
Two experimental queer works will inaugurate the new media room at NP Contemporary Art Center on Thursday, Oct. 21st, 2010. The title, ‘What Is Life Without The Living?’ misremembers the opening lyric to the theme of Imitation of Life. The tune hauntingly floods Luther Price’s A. Alongside David Scheid’s video, Margot Kidder, these works reconstruct Hollywood from a space of queer fantasy with their drag and collage editing tactics. The event is curated by programmer and moving-image scholar Bradford Nordeen, featuring a very special digital introduction by critic and author Kevin Killian and a post-screening discussion with David Scheid.
