Exhibition Dates: March 23 – May 19, 2012
Special Performance: Jose y Jose (California Dreamin’) March 8, 2012 6-8pm
Third Streaming is proud to present Federal, State, County and City (The Deferment of Impatience and Motor Responses to Being in California with Laura ’Riding’ Jackson, Florence Knoll, Kruder and Dorfmeister, José Feliciano and Gertrude Stein) by conceptual artist Mary Ellen Carroll. The exhibition brings together Carroll’s earlier work – reappearances – and new pieces that are being shown for the first time. The show unites these selections through the common thread of California, and includes four projects that incorporate photography, printmaking and performance art. All of the works discuss themes of repetition, duration and the concept of place, particularly as they relate to the artistic process. In conjunction with the exhibition, the Museum of the Moving Image is pleased to announce the screening of Federal, a 24-hour, two-theater movie by Carroll that will run from 9am on Saturday, March 24th to 9am on Sunday, March 25th, 2012.
Mary Ellen Carroll lives and works in NYC and Houston, Texas. She has been investigating a single, fundamental question throughout her oeuvre: what do we consider a work of art? The results are a multifarious, provocative and often wry outpouring in performance, theatre, architecture, writing, photography, filmmaking, printmaking, sculpture and painting.
