Seasonal Special Happenings

Fractures

When: Thu., Feb. 7, 7 p.m. 2013

A free evening of wacked-out early movies from the ’60s and ’70s, curated by Brett Kashmere, the guy who founded a journal of "experimental media" and who curated the museum's Inside Out and from the Ground Up video salon, tonight’s program at the Museum of Contemporary Art is called "Fractures" and features five short films which — be forewarned — will probably be strange, but will no doubt be visually striking. In the parlance of the haute art crowd, they're all "structural-materialist" productions and loosely fit into this sub-category of the avant-garde. Basically, the idea is that as films were becoming a more dominant medium, visual artists were experimenting with its limits, moving from thought expressed as objects to thought expressed as ideas and moving images. The screening begins at 7 p.m. and admission is free. (Sam Allard)
