Dickson Schneider presents "Placeholders," hand-drawn QR codes which lead viewers to hand-drawn animations via their cell phones.
On Friday, August 17th Krowswork will feature the work of Dale Hoyt, Michael Deane, and Julia Vering. We are pleased to screen Hoyt's important 1985 work, The Complete Anne Frank (36 minutes), which is part of the collection of The Museum of Modern Art and is currently on view there. Along with Hoyt's work the program will feature Greed by Michael Deane, a sardonic look at a Western taken from behind the scenes, and Julia Vering's You Live Here Too, a performance documentation featuring video, animation, and live action. Elderly women dressed in red wigs describe their fictional store, in which they record the comings and goings of customers--recording xrays, dreams, and more. Unlike anything you've seen! This program is not to be missed.
On Friday, August 24th, Live video/sound performances by John Davis, Collin McKelvey (Orbless), and Derek Gedalecia (Headboggle). The live performances are preceded by "Close to Cosmos," a video line-up of international makers curated by Chris Hughes, one of the most knowledgeable video art aficionados around and founder of Video Art Collector site. The program will feature work by Claire Evans, Ronnie Bass, Kim Collmer, Ohad Meromi, Aleksandra Mir, Larissa Sansour, and Maria Antelman. Screening at 8; music/live video at 9.
