Description

ArtCenter/South Florida presents A VALENCE

Hosted by: Miami Beach Cinematheque

Free with RSVP!

A VALENCE presents four works on social and historical abstraction curated by Rachael Rakes as part of the exhibition On Documentary Abstraction. Featuring short films by Coleen Fitzgibbon, Tomashi Jackson, Marilou Lemmens and Richard Ibghy, and Ana Vaz. Conversation with artists Lemmens and Ibghy immediately following the films.

Self Portrait Tale of Two Michaels, Tomashi Jackson, 2014, 15 mins.

A work on the strange and sad intersection between Michael Brown and singer Michael Macdonald in the town of Ferguson, MO. Self Portrait Tale of Two Michaels literally animates the some of the themes and textures of Jackson’s sculptural work.

Occidente, Ana Vaz, 2014, 15 mins.

Occidente layers images and conflates past and present in order to meditate on Portuguese colonial history and its legacies. A work of contrasts and counterpoints, the work examines the lines between exploration and tourism, resource and commodity, monuments and fictions.

Real Failure Needs no Excuse, Marilou Lemmens and Richard Ibghy, 2012, 22 mins.

Consisting of a series of movements conducted in an empty office building, Real failure Needs no Excuse imagines what Lemmens and Ibghy lucidly refer to as the “transgressive potential of non-productive action and its relation to labor, work, and the imagination.”

Document, Coleen Fitzgibbon 16mm transfer to digital, b/w, sound, 8:22 minutes.

A spinning reel of microtext film records--warrants, debts, bank checks--that increasingly becomes mesmerically abstracted through speed and repetition.
