Exquisite Corpse: A 16mm Collaborative Film Workshop with Artist Emily Francisco
Saturday, December 16 | 12-2:30 PM | VisArts’ Pop-Up (VisAbility Art Lab’s Studio at 36F Maryland Avenue)
Join artist Emily Francisco for an experimental collaborative 16mm film workshop!
Participants are invited to select, modify, and animate directly onto 16mm film scraps or blank polyester film, using permanent markers. The work produced will be spliced together to make a short, collaborative film, which will be projected and crudely captured. A recording of the projection will be distributed to participants.
All materials will be provided.
Emily Francisco’s solo exhibition, The Ocular Harpsichord Revisited (Common Ground Gallery), uses disrupted signal flow, cheap consumer technologies, and discarded obsolete devices to deal with fragmented time. Francisco collects existing objects, processes the physical and metaphorical weight the objects carry, and then pieces together the disparate elements in an attempt to make things whole. As a result, she creates objects and environments that require activation – work that’s incomplete until the viewer is present and engaging in the moment.
This event is free, but to reserve your space, please add a ticket and check out below.
