BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

In response to the exhibition Destroy the Picture: Paint ing the Void\, 1949-62\, Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA presents an int ernational program of radical films that puncture the image\, three-dimensi onalize the film surface\, or otherwise challenge the traditional cinematic experience. Each work in the program unleashes an energy unseen in ordinar y cinema by transforming the strip of film from an unbroken “window on the world” into a turbulent contest of individual frames.
Just as post-wa r painters challenged the continued legitimacy of the picture plane\, artis ts working in film sought to push past the “realistic” representations of t ime and space typified by the hegemonic Hollywood studio productions. Break ing with accepted forms of cinematic representation–often by physically alt ering the film itself–these works appear to fulfill Lucio Fontana’s prescie nt call for the discovery of a “luminous malleable substance” that would al low for an art of speed to be created in four dimensions. Politically\, sex ually\, and formally radical\, these transgressive works from 1959-67 still retain their power to shock. The result is a visceral cinema\, both litera lly and metaphorically full of holes.
