Microscope Gallery is very pleased to present the first solo screening of works by Matt Town, a young filmmaker who arrived in New York from Florida last summer just in time to be included in our “now what #2″ screening and live film performance event. Town works with black and white, silent 16mm films that relate to and are driven by personal ties to the neighborhoods, dwellings, and public institutions he examines and unpacks with his camera.
We are very pleased to welcome New York-based artist Katie Cercone for a solo screening of new and recent video works. Microscope has previously shown two of Cercone’s videos on different occasions as part of curated group screenings. Through her performative videos – always involving complex, glittering mixed-media sculptures that become actual film sets – Cercone explores feminism and the spirituality of hip hop, intended as the embodiment of the free expression of power, symbolism, dance and song as metalanguage.
