Generic Remix Project, January 24
Artists in Person. Artists take a stand . . . again. Revisiting an idea from the Vietnam era, Lynne Sachs sounded the call, and several generations of artists, united by their disgust for the war in Iraq, responded.
James Melchert in Person. For this 1976 BAM-sponsored piece, James Melchert rounded up leading artists from Eleanor Antin to William Wegman and gave each $100 and four minutes of conceptual time. The results are timeless. With Tom Marioni–curated short A Tight Thirteen Minutes.
Mike Plante in Person. Cinevegas's Mike Plante, a man with a delicious sense of play, invited artists like James Benning and Jem Cohen to lunch; their part of the bill: a new film, made for the price of the meal.
Nancy Buchanan in Person. Is your idea of normal defined by stock footage? Nancy Buchanan and fellow artists explored the filmic generic: "All participants produced warped, new entities with eerily familiar parts."-Redcat. With short Exquisite Corpse.
Thomas Beard in Person. We think you're old enough for this reworking of 1974's Free to Be . . . You and Me by 20 leading avant-garde filmmakers, all grown up now. With short Mary Worth.
