BYOF: Bring Your Own Film
Join artists Kevin Arrow and Barron Sherer for a one evening only program of multiple motion picture and slide projections (16mm, Super 8mm, Regular 8mm.) The audience is encouraged to bring projectable, silent films (limit to 10 minutes) and mounted 35mm slides for inclusion (time permitting). During the screening Sherer & Arrow will also spin select 45s and LPs. BYOF also invites you to BYOB (bring your own booze!)
Kevin Arrow is a multifaceted artist living and working in Miami, Florida. His work takes on various forms including drawing, painting, film and audio based projects. In his work Arrow merges his interest in obsolete media, "archival tendencies" and the ephemeral object.
As Arrow states,
Through [my] works [I] continually seek to find the sublime within the mundane, and the mundane within the sublime experience, in addition to investigating the interchangeability of both.
Arrow's work has been widely exhibited in South Florida since the mid 1980s. He has exhibited his work at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, the Miami Art Museum, the de la Cruz contemporary art space, The Art & Cultural Center of Hollywood, Bas Fisher Invitational, TwentyTwenty, The Girl's Club, Ft. Lauderdale, The Far Side Gallery and Carol Jazzar Contemporary, to name but a few.
Barron Sherer is a Miami-based film and video artist, curator and programmer. His works have screened and exhibited in Miami and around the United States. Sherer has curated and co-produced many film programs and festivals for local cinemas, museums, galleries and moving image archives. As a film and video archivist and preservationist, he has researched thousands of moving images for award-winning productions including Academy Award nominated films such as The Weather Underground, Milk, and The Cove. In 2006, the Miami New Times named Barron “Best Film Buff”.
