  • Imageless Films: Maya

    If there’s one central element that would seem to be intrinsic and indispensable to any reasonable definition of the cinema it would be the presence of imagery, whether photographed, animated, or generated through more experimental methods such as hand-painting, scratching, collaging, and so on.

    On Saturday October 8th, Maenad Collective - a recently established studio art space in Ridgewood, New York - will be sharing a series of 8mm films by artist and filmmaker Alex Faoro. The images, presented throughout the space, will be accompanied by live cello and sound processing by musician Alice Gerlach.

  • Early Films by Peter Tscherkassky

    After a decade in Greenpoint, Light Industry has moved to East Williamsburg: 361 Stagg Street, Suite 407. Our fall season begins in this new space, designed by AD-WO, with a selection of early films by Peter Tscherkassky. The works assembled here stand as some of the most vital cinematic experiments of the late 20th century, appealing, at once, to the eye through the virtuosity of their formal construction, and to the theoretical imagination through their rigorous conceptual strategies.

    Venue: 

    Light Industry - New York, United States
