VANESSA RENWICK : NSEW FILM TOUR!!!

NSEW tour flier (1) schonberg paris v trojan implosion small Vanessa and Fox road tripping

Exploded View is super excited to host the fantastic Vanessa Renwick in Tucson !!

Vanessa Renwick has been a singular voice in the experimental cinema for over 20 years. Eschewing an allegiance to any one medium or form, Renwick builds authentic moving image works revealing an insatiable curiosity and unflinching engagement with the world around her. Often focusing her lens on themes of westward expansion and the locales of her adopted home, the Pacific Northwest, Renwick uses avant-garde formal elements to explore radical politics and environmental issues.

A selection of 13 shorts. These short, personal constructions demonstrate a wide range of formal approaches and subjects that include wildness, hitchhiking, death, nuclear power, gentrification and migration. Renwick’s films share a restless spirit, an interest in outlaw art-making, and an unflagging sense of wanderlust. Without fail, the work is intense, hard to pin down and even harder to forget.

“Vanessa Renwick’s films reveal the hidden stories and secret lives that define our great national weirdness, imbued with the radical curiosity and vision of a true pioneer.” –Todd Haynes

“The best, most temporal way of making a building that I ever heard of is by making it with light. The Fascists did a lot of this “light architecture.”  If you build buildings with lights outside, you can make them indefinite, and then when you’re through using them

you shut the lights off and they disappear.”

-Andy Warhol (1975)

 

A feast for all senses, EV invites you to our polyphonic living installation of film, music and multiple multi-channeled mayhem. The Exploded View gallery will be transformed into giant mirrored chamber within which will be projected Andy Warhol’s 1964 silent 8 hour/10 reel film masterpiece EMPIRE.

(filmmakers in person)

Kate McCabe will be showcasing a decade’s worth of her moving image work combining humor in experimental film and premiering her latest 16mm work, You and I Remain. A film inspired by the Anthropocene, You and I Remain is an apocalyptic lullaby, a landscape film mediating on the end of the world. Shot in Big Sur, the Salton Sea and in McCabe’s own neighborhood of Joshua Tree, the film shows us a portrait of the world askew with subtle and moving sound design by Jason Payne of Nitzer Ebb. Local fave, Gabriella Molina begins the evening with a selection of her recent fantastical cut-out animations and light experiments!

END OF THE WORLD! Iris Film Collective 16mm Film Tour

(Vancouver filmmaker Ryder Thomas White in person)

Engaging DIY aesthetics and politics, Iris Film Collective presents eight of their new hand-processed b&w 16mm films with a collective theme addressing “the end of the world”. Iris writes, “… the sea levels rise, the magnetic poles switch, we face the mortality of ourselves and those we love and question ideas of identity, representation and time itself.” This unique program pushes the technical limits of motion picture film, imagination and collaboration.

IFC is a Vancouver-based group of independent artists creating, exhibiting and touring film-based works with the goal of increasing the visibility and accessibility of experimental media art. Above all, our interest in ciné film—actual celluloid—at a time when this medium is shifting to a post-industry model, is of key interest in all our pursuits.
