LA Opera’s THE MAGIC FLUTE

Watch this amazing trailer for the upcoming US premiere of Mozart’s The Magic Flute at the LA Opera mixing live-performance against video projection backdrops reminiscent of silent film era found footage. 

Looking forward to this production in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles!

Christian Marclay’s The Clock: 24-Hour Screening












Saturday, April 20, 2013 | 12 pm

Through Sunday, April 21 | 12 pm
LACMA presents another special twenty-four-hour screening of Christian Marclay’s The Clock beginning Saturday, April 20, at noon and ending at noon on Sunday, April 21. The Clock is a twenty-four-hour single-channel montage constructed from thousands of moments of cinema and television history depicting the passage of time. Marclay has excerpted each of these moments from their original contexts and edited them together to create a functioning timepiece synchronized to local time wherever it is viewed—marking the exact time in real time for the viewer for twenty-four consecutive hours. The sampled clips come from films of all genres, time periods, and cultures, some lasting only seconds, others minutes, and have been culled from hundreds of films, famous and obscure, into a seamless whole. The result, a melding of video and reality, unfolds with a seemingly endless cast of cameos. By making the film available in its entirety, this free screening will allow The Clock to be viewed the way Marclay has intended.

Moving Image Gathers No Moss, as Video Art Fair Pushes the Medium’s Boundaries
Now in their third year, Moving Image co-founders Edward Winkleman and Murat Orozobekov keep refining the fair’s formula, doing away with many of the suspended screens that lined the walls of the former Tunnel nightclub in years past to allow for more spacious installations by a selection of galleries from New York, other U.S. cities, and far-flung places like Helsinki, Estonia, and Rio de Janeiro.

VAEFF 2013 Photo Album


The three-day festival attracted, despite the stormy weather, crowds of video art and experimental film lovers. Artists traveled to New York City from Colombia, Italy, Peru, the UK, and all around the US. Friday night featured a cozy panel discussion with Alanna Heiss, Kevin McCoy, David Ross (who appeared through videoconference after being stuck in Beacon due to the snow), Mark Alpert, and VAEFF’s own Katya Yakubov. Much was talked about, from the omnipresence of television to the importance of recognizing artistic intention. Participants later mingled in a gala reception with food and wine in the cinemas’ Varick Room Bar. The festival concluded with the screening of I Send You This Place, a definite crowd-pleaser. Thanks to everyone who made VAEFF 2013 possible, from the Tribeca Cinemas staff to our panelists and artists.
