An evening of recent work by Los Angeles based film- and video-maker, Madison Brookshire. Using meditative shots that rely on minutae of light and sound to convey the music of the city, Brookshire's most recent videos focus on the act of recording itself. His work has been described as "a quiet but grand record of the contemporary American landscape (Andy Ditzler)."
The evening will include Los Angeles premiers of FALLING (2008); DUBLIN (2008); VERMONT (2008); MELROSE (2008); NORMAL (2008); and A SHOUT IN THE STREET (2005). OPENING (2007) will be shown with live, musical accompaniment by Michael Pisaro, Cassia Streb and Tashi Wada.
“[OPENING] is attentive to small movements—cars in the distance, a herd of sheep. Austere but intensely focused compositions suggest that mindful observation can render ordinary sights meaningful.”
