Happy 2015, it’s George, CATE’s program assistant here. Thanks for checking in with Conversations at the Edge blog. You’ll be glad you had as we have a fabulous lineup of international artists and scholars in our Spring 2015 season!

Highlights include German born new media artist and theorist Marisa Olson whose projects have taken on a variety of forms including pointed YouTube responses to iconic feminist videos; SAIC alum John Gerrard’s virtual emulations of outposts of human industry; and the program Projections, Portraits, and Picaresques, in which personal identity is articulated in relation to aesthetic and community, fiction and truth.

If that wasn’t exciting enough we will be welcoming artist, and Chicago resident Robin Deacon to CATE, along with South Korean filmmaker Soon-Mi Yoon, and Academy Award nominated animator Daniel Sousa. Dennis Lim, director of programming at the Film Society of the Lincoln Center will present a recent restoration of Massimo Sarchielli’s seminal 1975 documentary Anna. You can browse through the entire season here.

I really believe this spring season may be one of our best yet! So I hope that you’ll be able to join us this season at the Gene Siskel Film Center. CATE commences in just a few short weeks—Thursday, February 19th.
