NEW WORKS SALON XXXV: Braunschweiler, Levin, O’Dwyer, Vargas, Verdin

Saturday, August 27 at 8PM

The New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and discussion of new works in film, video, sound, and performance, with local and visiting artists in-person to introduce their work, curated by Rick Bahto. This program features: Marco Braunschweiler will show the first three films in his Monkey Series, an in-progress album of 15–18 videos that loosely follows the narrative structure of James Joyce’s Ulysses, along with a selection of other short video works. New York-based artist Mikael Levin’s At Work; Me, My Brother, Our Father. For this short video, Mikael Levin filmed himself printing in his darkroom, filmed his brother painting in his studio, and re-edited old footage of his father writing in his beachside cottage. We see each engaged in his work; method and workspace giving form to the interiority of the creative process. (Mikael Levin, Brooklyn, NY 2016; Eli Levin, Apodaca, NM 2013; Meyer Levin, Beit Yanai, Israel 1970). Deirdre O’Dwyer will show a new hand-drawn animation about the artist Tom Tierney (1928–2014), who published at least 400 paper-doll books in his lifetime. The film is a remembrance of his hands, set to his own voice. O’Dwyer drew this film, tracing iPhone footage of a conversation between Tom Tierney and Sarah Jacoby, another fan he welcomed into his home and studio in Smithville, Texas, in January 2014. Walter Vargas will show his new video A cooking experiment (for Internet consumption only), and Pedro Verdin will show prologue to the ending, a video documenting two conversations occurring simultaneously in Northern California.

Doors at 7:30PM. $5 suggested donation.
