The Kitchen says…

Curated by Molly Surno In this evening of film and live music, Cinema 16 pairs five short films with a specially commissioned score by New York musician and visual artist Matteah Baim. These films address optical perception and the limitlessness of visual cognition. They include Standish Lawder's ColorFilmSabrina Ratte's Mirages (originally commissioned for Le Révélateur), Viking Eggeling's Symphonie Diagonole, and Len Lye's Color Cry. Named after the avant-garde film society run by Amos and Marcia Vogel between 1947 and 1963 in New York, Molly Surno now pairs contemporary musical artists with silent works from the experimental film canon.

This program is made possible with support from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
