8 pm. $5.
LA AIR is a new artist-in-residence program that invites Los Angeles filmmakers to utilize EPFC resources in creating a new work over a four-week period. October’s resident, Rick Bahto, has an on-going series of films that are made in response to the work of other artists. During his residency, he will complete a project For Paul Clipson, dealing with aspects of the expansive body of Super 8 work from the filmmaker of that name. The screening will present this portion of Bahto’s films alongside the work of the artists to whom they are dedicated, with films and slide documentation of works by Karen Johannesen, Pablo Valencia, and Paul Clipson. He will also present films, slides, and audio documents of performances of the work of Mark So, including documentary footage of his performance of So’s work parallel to the earth (in the angles where the grass writing goes on), which was begun in mid-September and will continue on indefinitely.
Program includes: For Paul Clipson, For Karen Johannesen, For Pablo Valencia, For Bill Jenkins, Performing marmarth, and Monument Valley by Rick Bahto; Chorus by Paul Clipson; 76 Station and Pink Opaque by Karen Johannesen; Films I & II by Pablo Valencia; slides documenting work by Bill Jenkins, Pablo Valencia, and Mark So.
