Call for entries - Deep Leap Microcinema : Kill Your Idols


Deadline:
Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:34

DEEP LEAP MICROCINEMA seeks short experimental film, video and new media works (for screening) and performance proposals (Chicago area).

KILL YOUR IDOLS - a program of works that take as their source (conceptually or materially) the history of avant-garde moving images. How does the use of one's favorite Brakhage film as "found" footage change and charge the politics and poetics of appropriation? What are the limits of re-enaction? How does the acknowledgement of a canon within an avant-garde practice impact new makers?

THE BODY ELECTRONIC: AN EVENING WITH JESSE MALMED
WEDNESDAY JULY 20, 2011 at 7 PM (reception to follow)

Whip smart, blissfully dense and multipronged cinema and performance; conceptual poetics, direct address, participatory movie song.
+ + + + + + 
Jesse Malmed presents a fascinating and manifold mix of conceptually rich video L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E poetics, process-intensive bi-fidelity abstractedelia and participatory installations such as the multiple iterations of CONVERSATIONAL KARAOKE!! (in which audience members perform dizzying, strange and incisive texts of the artist's design). 
Briefest bio: artist, curator; video, film, installation, performance + text; Santa Fe, Bard College, San Francisco, Portland (, Chicago); Deep Leap Microcinema, Cinema Project, Creative Music Guild, Lasercave; Body Electronic, This Is What, Conversational Karaoke; galleries, microcinemas, bars, barns, universities, underground, skybound. 

the sonic, visual and (extra-)communicative potentials of language, a keen eye toward the history of experimental media art and an interest in the transcendent power of pure cinema... equal parts conceptual and instinctual, the work bears a zany levity that helps to buoy sometimes-incomprehensible​ blissmash visuals and dense textwork." 
NEW WORKS! MOVING TO CHICAGO! ALL IDEAS MUST GO!
(This show also marks the release of several new publications on paper and cassette and the premieres of three new moving image works.)

DEEP LEAP MICROCINEMA :


Deadline:
Sun Nov 22, 2009 00:00

DEEP LEAP MICROCINEMA is a curatorial project devoted to pairing thematically-related film/video programs with cogent, interdisciplinary performance, reading, music and lecture. This monthly art event focuses on the efforts and works of emerging and innovative artists working within the realms of experimental film, video art and new media art. Each program is shaped around a theme with appropriate and elucidating musicians, performers and lecturers.

The theme for this show is SACRED GEOMETRIES. The program is shaped around notions of shape, form, geometry, the spirit and experiential geographies. Global and Portland artists alike presented critical, engaged work.
