It’s FREE!: Film/Video Art series this fall at the Smithsonian American Art Museum

I missed the first one, an exhibition of a couple Hollis Frampton films this past weekend, but there are four more screenings on the calendar. The screenings will be at the McEvoy Auditorium in the museum which is located at 8th and F Sts. NW. (Metro: Gallery Place/Chinatown on the Red Line). The remaining programs are:

Thursday, Sept. 20, 6 p.m., Mediated Narratives

This program features a selection of titles drawn from the history of independent film and video art. The works all represent, through a variety of formal and narrative strategies, how we see and imagine our world through the media. Included in the program are Morgan Fisher’s Projection Instructions (1976); George Landow’s Film in Which There Appear Sprocket Holes, Edge Lettering, Dirt Particles, Etc. (1965–66); Nam June Paik’s Videotape Study #3 (1967–69); John Baldessari’s Ed Henderson Recreates Movie Scenarios (1973); Sadie Benning’s It Wasn’t Love (1992); Peggy Ahwesh’s A Scary Movie (1993); Robert Breer’s Fuji (1974); and Kota Ezawa’s The Simpson Verdict (2002).
