> DESCRIPTION

We humans are proud of the material accretion of our thinking—the objects and writings that represent our particular experience. We’re especially fond of amassing, grouping, and pondering the leavings. It can be dangerous to be so fond, not only due to the threat of becoming buried by our precious hoard, but also the threat of being trapped by a collected history offering an illusion of permanence. The artists in Semi-Permanent Program consider this unstable pile through the lens of essentially temporal mediums. Screened in conjunction with Archival Impulse, on view at Gallery 400 through December 17th, the films and videos reflect on the various natures of collections and the act of collecting, revealing both the potential and limitations of dutifully archived human knowledge. With films and videos by: John Latham, Alain Resnais, Oliver Laric, Rebecca Baron, Michael Bell-Smith, David Gatten, Paperrad,and Eric Fleischauer
