DAY60

Microscope is very pleased to announce the premiere of PART THREE “March” from Jonas Mekas’ “365 Day Project” as the third of a 12-part program, screened at the end of each month, comprising the nearly 38-hour long video project. For the year of 2007, Mekas challenged himself to make and upload a video on his website each day, at times repurposing or incorporating previously unseen footage from his earlier 16mm films and analog videos.

Microscope is pleased to present Repondez s’il vous plaît (A.R. is not invited), a collaborative, multi-projected 35mm film slide and sound performance by Wien-based artist Magda Tothova. The piece is based on Tothova’s ongoing research about and around a person whose identity has been reduced to the initials A.R. Text and slides will be accompanied by improvised loops, vocals, and percussion to create the atmosphere of a mystified figure, who is present but not welcomed.

People Walking Through the Berlin Wall

We are very pleased to welcome to the gallery curator Liz Flyntz and Berlin-based artist Ira Schneider in one of his rare visits to New York for a screening of historical and recent works. This program will present a selection of Ira Schneider’s early video work (and a few samples of late 16mm film) as well as more recent moving image experiments and newly transferred and edited work from the late 60s. Works range from formal experimentation to documents of the early video art scene in NYC. The artist will give short notes and impressions on some of the pieces. Curator Liz Flyntz will introduce Schneider and lead discussion after the program.

Paolo Gioli: Face / Figure / Film

ATMGE_1

Microscope Gallery is pleased to present in conjunction with our current exhibit Paolo Gioli: Volti a screening program of 16mm films by the Italian artist, selected by Paris-based curator Enrico Camporesi. In the five black and white films in the program, which span forty years, the artist visits a recurring subject of the human face or figure. Trained as a painter, Paolo Gioli’s attention has always been toward matters of portraiture or self-portraiture. A tireless inventor and bricoleur of various optical devices, Gioli couples his bold technical and formal gestures with a passion for the most classic themes of art history.
