The Humboldt Moving Picture Show presents, on the evening of Saturday, July 17, 2010, a program of over 25 artists’ interpretations of the moving picture. An outdoor screening will be held at sunset in the Sideyard at Richmond Manor, while experimental videos, films, and animations will also be installed in the apartment.
Curators Stephanie Nadeau and Amira Hanafi use Richmond Manor not as a gallery, but as a domestic space that retains its character: the intact living room is a site for conversation around the TV; garage windows are animated by video installations; at a desk a viewer contemplates images of abandoned offices. The outdoor screening transforms an empty lot into a theater. Popcorn and beverages will be available for a small donation.
The first Humboldt Moving Picture Show was conceived as a community affair; this year’s program features more than 25 moving pictures from local and international artists located in Egypt, Kosovo, Palestine, Germany, and Mexico.
