> DESCRIPTION

Under the able eye of Keith Evans, cinema returns to its primal apparatus as “fascination devices” that lavish us with emulsive mystery. Along with a constellation of collaborators, Evans will bathe the gallery in a “liquid world of reflections, refractions, and spectral resonance” via his beautifully imagined projection contraptions. Exhibiting a similar fascination with the origins of the moving image, Paul Clipson delves into the natural world, sometimes in miniature, sometimes in monumentality, to offer a Super 8 optical odyssey through poetic forms of light and shadow. Clipson builds an ecstatic ecology of interdependent visual improvisation and equally inventive electronic music, the latter performed live by Gregg Kowalsky on an array of audio add-ons.

Preceded at 6 p.m. by one of our favorite KALX DJs spinning in the lobby, where wine and beer are available for purchase.
