Conversations at the Edge begins its Spring 2013 season on Valentine’s Day! We’ll be celebrating with a program of short, geographically-sweeping films by Fern Silva, named one of the “top 25 avant-garde filmmakers for the 21st century” in Film Comment magazine.
Additional highlights will include appearances by Karen Yasinsky (2/21), Darko Fritz (2/28), Hannes Schüpbach (4/4), Rosa Barba (4/11), and Eric Fleischauer and Jason Lazarus with the world premiere of their 2013 film twohundredfiftysixcolors (4/18). We’ll also take a new look at the work of pioneering Chicago video artist Phil Morton through the eyes of contemporary new media artists (REMIX IT RIGHT, 3/7), catch up on work featured at the Toronto International Film Festival’s celebrated Wavelengths sidebar with curator Andréa Picard (WAVELENGTHS, 3/21), and explore some of the visionary short films produced by the L.A. Rebellion with scholar Jacqueline Stewart (L.A. Rebellion, 3/28).
