Miami Filmmakers Collective and The Screening Room
are pleased to invite you to an
with New York based duo Aziz + Cucher
Tuesday, January 21st, 6pm
at The Screening Room
2626 NW 2nd Avenue
Wynwood Art District
This ART TALK is in conjunction with Time of the Empress, the exhibition on view curated by Tami Katz-Freiman. The artists will introduce their work over the last twenty years, and in particular they will discuss “Some People”— their recent body of work of film and video installation related to their politically-oriented project commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA, 2012). They will elaborate on how these video works were triggered by their own personal histories and how their focus transitioned from body politics to conflict politics.
Time of the Empress depicts animated drawings of modernist buildings in an infinite loop of construction and disintegration. These architectural renderings appear buoyant, suspended in a cycle of growth and dissolution, like Towers of Babel, simultaneously rising and collapsing. Paradoxically they also possess an inherent tranquility, evoking the patterns of our economy, of nature, and of life itself.
The Screening Room is a new media exhibition and project space located in the Wynwood Art District, dedicated to film and video programs, lectures and gatherings.
The Miami Filmmakers Collective is a laboratory for film and video events, providing an environment where individuals and institutions involved in the cinematic arts can get to know and support each other’s work, discover their audience, and connect to a national and international filmmaking community.
This ART TALK has also been made possible with the support of the James S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its Knight Art Challenge and the Betsy Hotel
On Saturday, Februrary 15th, 2014
A collaboration between the Sundance Institute and the Miami Filmmakers Collective will be made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation with additional support from The New World Symphony, Borscht Corp and The Betsy Hotel.
