ARTIST FILM CLUB
Friday, November 2 | 8-9pm | Downstairs cafe |Free
Guest curator: Amelia Ishmael
In September, Nitehawk initiated an “Artist Film Club” with a screening of Jim Shaw’s 2007 film The Hole. The aim with the monthly Artist Film Club program is to garner a community at Nitehawk who is interested in artist and experimental films. So, each month invited curators will present a program of moving images either short-form and/or feature-length works.
As part of our November “Artist Film Club,” Chicago-based independent curator and scholar Amelia Ishmael presents an assemblage of lights and sounds which elicit a chaotic vortex of smudgy black charcoal that is streaked with freezing water, painted on celluloid, stained by sea creatures, hexed through new media, and entranced by guitar riffs.
Featured artists include:
Gast Bouschet and Nadine Hilbert
Reto Mäder and Daniel Steffen for Ural Umbo
Michel Pennec for Aluk Todolo
and Aldo Tambellini
