Works by Jack Waters and Peter Cramer

With Jack Waters and Peter Cramer

This event is part of a monthly screening series with The Film-Makers’ Cooperative.

The program launches two videos which examine the construction of performance, both which are distributed by the Film-makers’ Coop. One comes from the perspective of contemporary art practice, the other as a strategic query into ways in which veracity and information are constructed and disseminated into a cultural mainstream.

Program

Giornalisti En Maschera

30 min., 2009

Did painting die, or simply meiotically reproduce as video art? Has nationalism outlived its cultural relevance? These familiar questions and others are reconstituted and posed at the press previews of the  2001Venice Biennial. The director/performers investigate relations of art, business, and politics in the guise of objective journalists three months preceding 9/11. Other interviewees include Special Prize winners Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller (Canada), and other artists; woven together with excerpts from Thomas Mann’s Death in Venice.

Söma Söma Söma

34 min., 2000

Examining three generations of conceptual, performance, and installation  by artists Geoffrey Hendricks, William Pope L., and Patty Chang with interviews and footage of their exhibition performances. A documentary video of the exhibition of the same title curated by William Pope L. at NYC’s Sculpture Center at its former location on East 69th St. Originally conceived as a private commission by artist Geoffrey Hendricks to document his performances, Cramer & Waters had access to include the artists  regarding their participation to provide a wider context for the exhibition.
