UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS AND SCREENINGS:

EVERY SHOT FROM DZIGA VERTOV’S MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA AS AN ANIMATED GIF

September 16 – 21, 2019.
Spanish Cultural Center, Lima, Peru.
MUTA International Festival of Audiovisual Appropriation.

In “Every Shot from Dziga Vertov’s Man with a Movie Camera as an Animated GIF” Vertov’s pioneering film Man with a Movie Camera is meticulously reorganized and reconfigured spatially as a series of animated GIF montages, projected large scale. One complete viewing of the GIF montage series contains every shot in the film, edit for edit, offering viewers an alternate way‚ at once strange and familiar‚ to experience this revolutionary film.

The work will be presented as a gallery installation for the duration of the festival.
