  • Funny:Looking

    By on

    As creative devices, humor and play have the power to both soothe and subvert. When juxtaposed with serious themes in art, humor and play may create cognitive dissonance in the viewer where, amidst their internal conflict, viewers can often laugh at their own discomfort. Henri Bergson noted in “Laughter: An Essay on the Meaning of the Comic,” there is an “…absence of feeling which usually accompanies laughter.” This absence creates a space for viewers to unpack the deeper conceptual underpinnings of the work.

  • Still Dreaming: Remembering Phil Solomon

    By on

    Phil Solomon (January 3, 1954—April 20, 2019) was among the great avant-garde filmmakers of this era. Solomon’s more than twenty films and digital pieces create an interior universe that has rarely, if ever, been surpassed in any medium for its intimacy, evocation of personal sensibility, expressive dream-like sounds and images, and for its sublime—and terrifying—sense of ambiguity between the recognizable world and its dissolution.

  • Aldo Tambellini / Early Film and Video

    By on

    "Aldo Tambellini is avant-garde in the purest sense of the word. Some describe the avant-garde as the "vanguard" of aesthetic discovery. By this definition, the avant-garde is viewed as the newest of the new, the "bleeding edge" as some describe it. And Aldo's work certainly conforms to all of these descriptions. His work IS and was beyond its time. His experimentations cross media divides. He pioneered video art and is now pioneering VR at a time when some are still nostalgic for analog purity.
