Mono No Aware’s OPEN AIR SCREENING SERIES presents 16MM films on LOOP visible from a distance from dusk until dawn, at 72 ROCKWELL PLACE, Brooklyn, New York 11217 – Between BRIC Media Arts Center & BAM Rose Cinemas. This screening benefits The National Bailout via suggested donations at a sliding scale.

What was once taken for granted was never something to take for granted for. A loud crowd in a casino Sea of persons. Memory reconstructs now the most mundane acts into grand and lively moments. Murmured crowd in a terminal. Cashier’s hand brushing yours. The volume has been amplified; small insignificant events morphed into significance. Like a royal guard at ease, splayed out and lacking filter.

Karissa Hahn is a visual artist based in Los Angeles. Her work articulates the nature of contemporary image reproduction and dissemination through the use of analogue and digital technologies. Her work has shown in various cinemas, galleries, and institutions such as the New York Film Festival Projections, TIFF Wavelengths, MoMA’s Eyeslicer Series, CROSSROADS, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Ann Arbor Film Festival, and the Anthology Film Archives, among others.

With this series we ask that each presenting artist identify a non-profit they wish to bring attention to and support through this screening Karissa has selected The National Bailout.

Please consider making a donation to support these efforts.

The OPEN AIR SCREENING SERIES allows for 16mm film projection viewing with social and physical distance guidelines in place. 16mm film prints are projected, on loop, from dusk until dawn. Each artist receives an honorarium to support their practice. Each artist is asked to select a non-profit for a portion of the proceeds to benefit, a donation will be made in their name. And, YOU the audience are invited to enjoy the work, take part in the conversation and we ask that you consider making a donation as it directly supports the artist and the organization with which they share concern.
Curated by Steve Cossman, the OPEN AIR SCREENING SERIES is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council.
