The Moving Picture Show
February 19 - March 27, 2022
The Moving Picture Show is a group exhibition of work by 10 media artists who embrace and challenge the conventional uses of video, creating work that is formally innovative, conceptually rigorous and politically significant. Rooted in the moving image, this assembly includes video installation, video sculpture and single channel video, all by artists who make their home in the Hudson Valley.
Themes of landscape and history, human interaction with both natural and synthetic plant life, hacking of video games and techniques of animation are explored. Works in The Moving Picture Show celebrate the camaraderie of shared creative principles but are also unflinching in their social critique.
The exhibition features pieces made during and in response to the pandemic confinement as well as work preceding this period. Participating artists include: Ephraim Asili, Cecilia Aldarondo, eteam (Franziska Lamprecht and Hajoe Moderegger)*, Goss&Gitlin, Maggie Hazen, Laleh Khorramian, Les LeVeque, Keith Sanborn and Carolee Schneemann. The Moving Picture Show is curated by Peggy Ahwesh.
Open hours are Saturday & Sunday from 3-7pm. THE GALLERIES ARE CLOSED SATURDAY MARCH 12TH DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER!
An opening reception for the artists will be held on February 19th from 5-7pm.
Upcoming additional programming includes: Live music from artist Ephraim Asili & Norman The Poet, March 13th at 7pm.
This event, a listening party for the Measuring Time vinyl EP and a live music set featuring Ephraim Asili on Electronic devices and Norman Douglas reading poems, is a celebration of the publication of Ephraim Asili's book/vinyl record Measuring Time. A limited number of copies will be for sale at the gallery.
Ephraim Asili’s artist book Measuring Time (Visual Studies Workshop Press, 2021) is a collection of Polaroid portraits depicting independent and avant-garde film luminaries and traces the freeform way Asili documents the people and places that have marked the recent years of his life. Included with the book is a 7 inch vinyl record Addendum of the artist's Hip Hop inspired audio journal recordings. A uniquely poetic work in its own right, the book and record document the expansive cosmos around Asili's critically important films
