Black Thorns in the Black Box
A film screening curated by Amelia Ishmael and Bryan
Wendorf to occur in conjunction with “Black Thorns in the
White Cube” an exhibition of Black Metal inspired art
Amelia Ishmael, curator of the
gallery exhibition “Black Thorns in the White Cube,”
and Bryan Wendorf, co-founder and programmer of the Chicago
Underground Film Festival, invite you to submit works for consideration
to “Black Thorns in the Black Box,” a screening of Black Metal inspired films to take place in conjunction with the “Black Thorns in the White Cube” exhibitions.
This screening will contribute to an international discourse currently occurring in Black Metal theory that examines the innovations and significance of contemporary Black Metal art, and offers an account of the critical disruptions taking place as this historical Norwegian musical subgenre transforms into a language of contemporary art. Practicing a transmodality between sound and vision, and pushing the limits of contemporary academic genres by definition, “Black Thorns in the Black Box” will feature a mutual blackening of art and metal.
Entries will be accepted through October 1, 2011.
Artists will be notified of decisions by December 15, 2011.
DVD and blu-ray discs should be mailed to:
