“New from Old:
Practices of Appropriation”
Featuring: Bradley Eros
and Martha Colburn
The first in a three-part series presenting personal visions of cinema’s potential as an artistic medium, “New from Old” features three internationally exhibited filmmakers who have made appropriation central to their creative process. Each artist will present a selection of films and videos that exemplify the practice of making new from the old, turning ubiquitous media images to critical and expressive ends. Screening followed by a discussion.
