Doors at: 6:30 pm
Film Screening: 7:00-8:20 pm
Artist Talk: 8:30-9:00 pm, with Isabel Theselius and Yaron Hakim.
As part of Signal Fire's exhibition The Future Wild at Paragon Gallery, Signal Fire is hosting a screening of three outstanding short films at the Baker Building.
The program will present segments of two long-form works: New York artist Miriam Simun’s "I Did Not Have to Kill in Order to Survive," a narrative meditation on the act of hunting and the process of survival, and the poetic and the visually lavish film "Silver and Vanilla," a collaboration between LA-based artists Isabel Theselius and Yaron Hakim. The program also features Zhiwan Cheung’s 2015 video "Reading the Rainbow," an elaborate work about the act of naming, about culture and color, involving the artist manipulating sculptures within a lush landscape.
