LuminArte Gallery presents A.D.D. Film Night
LuminArte Gallery will present their first Attention Deficit Disorder (A.D.D.) Film night, featuring the simultaneous screening of two films that examine the visual and performing arts in society.
The Artist is Present featuring Marina Abramovic will be screened in the main gallery. Seductive, fearless and outrageous, Abramovic has been redefining art for nearly 40 years. The Artist is Present is a mesmerizing journey into the world of radical performance, and an intimate portrait of the astonishingly magnetic, and endlessly intriguing woman, who draws no distinction between life and art.
LuminArte Gallery Studio 1. will be screening 13 Most Beautiful, which consists of 13 of Andy Warhol’s infamous “screen tests’ selected from the hundreds shot by Andy Warhol between 1964 and 1966. The subjects are Factory denizens (including Nico, Dennis Hopper and Edie Sedgwick) and were recorded by Warhol’s stationary 16mm Bolex camera on silent, black and white, 100 foot rolls of film. Each screen test was exactly the same length, lasting only as long as the roll of film. The resulting films were projected in slow motion so that each lasted approximately four minutes. Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips were commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum to score the music for the screen tests. Wareham and Phillips are known for their melodic hooks, languid rhythms, clever lyrics, as well as the often referenced Velvet Underground influence in their music.
Guests are encouraged to alternate between viewing The Artist is Present in the main gallery and 13 Most Beautiful in Studio 1., hence the name A.D.D. Film Night
