After a celebrated solo presentation of his work for the cinema at Tate Modern in London in 2017, an expansive career overview at Harvard Film Archive in 2018, and a major retrospective of his films at Centre Pompidou in Paris in March this year as part of the festival Cinéma du réel, the influential US artist Kevin Jerome Everson arrives at the peak of his wildly successful career to the Museum of Contemporary Art Vojvodina in Novi Sad for a unique solo exhibition of his work. This gallery exhibition offers a selection of his short works on 16mm, installed as digital projections, as well as his eight-hour magnum opus Park Lanes (2015).

Microscope Gallery is happy to welcome Paris-based filmmaker Emmanuel Lefrant to the gallery for a special screening of his works on film. The program Underground — which is also the title of Lefrant’s first film and an indication of where most of his filmmaking takes place, literally or figuratively — features eight short films spanning fifteen years, nearly the artist’s complete filmography.
We celebrate Jonas Mekas’ work with one of his great diary-films, shot between 1969 and 1984: portraits of his community of artist and filmmaker friends (Rossellini, Anger, Warhol, Frampton, Lennon…), about “places, seasons of the year, climates (storms, snow, blizzards), streets and parks in New York, brief escapes to natural areas, nothing special, minor celebrations held over the years, up until now, and that are retained as a record in these short and personal sketches" (Mekas).
