3 Screenings: Mere Mystery

03.28.11

3 Screenings: Mere Mystery
Film + Video screening curated by Eric Fleischauer and Jesse McLean
Saturday / April 2 / 7:30 – 9:00pm / This event is free!

Featuring: Olivia Ciummo, Jack Cronin, Scott Wolniak, Michael Robinson, Mary Helena Clark, Keith Tassick, Lori Felker, Warren Cockerham and Alee Peoples.

Borrowing a title from Lori Felker’s film of the same name, Mere Mystery is a selection of work from artists who use film and video to locate, document and process the world in which they – and we – reside. Their work demonstrates their efforts to either map their surroundings or understand why they have to stay uncharted. By use of the moving image these artists provide glimpses into a world, both contemporary and impossibly ancient, teeming with vulgarity, vigor and unexplained beauty.

This collection of screenings is a curatorial project that was prompted by Chicago’s Green Lantern Gallery’s programming-based exploration into various forms of social ecology. Here, Eric Fleischauer and Jesse McLean have curated a series of three film and video screenings that follow a similar line of inquiry to investigate how artists have used the moving image to investigate both physical and the metaphysical environments and how we see and relate to one another, often with aid of media. The programs presented aim to identify and organize boundaries within the field that are being constantly renegotiated by artists working with moving images.

The next two screenings in the series will be:
