Spring finally arrives for “APRIL” as the 12-part monthly screening premiere of Jonas Mekas’s “365 Day Project” continues at Microscope. Over "Days 91-121", Mekas captures the moods of the “cruelest month”, considering deaths and resurrections, darkness and light, music and dance, rain and blossoming flowers.

We are pleased to welcome Berlin-based artist Deborah S. Phillips to the gallery for an evening of new and recent 16mm film and multi-projector expanded cinema compositions. The three works in the program descend deeply into the essence of the primary colors of red and blue, including chemical, culinary, linguistic and musical. The program includes the premiere of Phillips’ performance for 16mm film and two slide projectors T’chelet, completed in 2015 and based on the color blue, the 11-minute 16mm film Capsicum centered around the color red, and a nearly completely black film Chin-Chin accompanied by a special live and participatory soundtrack.

Microscope continues the 12-part monthly screening premiere of Jonas Mekas’s “365 Day Project”, with a Sunday evening screening of Part Five “MAY”. The diarist project finds Mekas returning throughout the month to thoughts of rebellion whether in the acts of others such as a reenactment of Paris May 1968 in the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, people surfing in a turbulent Munich river, or Jean-Jacques Lebel’s politically incorrect story about the poet Gregory Corso or through his own actions such as being evicted from a Nick Cave concert for illegally taping, reacting against a song that proclaims “Revolution is Over”, and in his 80s learning to smoke.
