Organized by David Norr, Chief Curator; Rose Bouthillier, Assistant Curator; and Brett Kashmere, independent curator and editor of INCITE Journal of Experimental Media

October 8, 2012February 24, 2013

This series explores how artists have used time-based media to engage space and architecture through duration, performance and embodied perspective. From hand-held shots to chemical treatments, these works emphasize the spatial and material qualities of film and video. Together, they prompt us to consider the social and psychological and aspects of a range of locations, including empty streets, an abandoned zoo, a historical house, hidden cavern, and physics lab.

Each screening will be looped continuously during MOCA Cleveland’s public hours.
