Hybrid Cinema – Films, Videos, and Expanded Cinema by Michael Alexander Morris

Sunday, August 27 at 8 pm

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.

Hybrid Cinema is a cross-section of Michael Morris’ work made over the last several years. Ranging from handmade films created from materials passed on by family to elegiac videos in ode to popular icons, as well as selections from a series of expanded cinema works called The Hermeneutics that explores how different generations of media interpret one another, each work examines the different ontologies of the various image making media used in its creation.

Michael A. Morris is an artist and educator based in Dallas, Texas. His work responds to the rapid changes in how moving images are created and experienced in the 21st century, affirming the traditional space of experiencing cinema while also exploring the implications of new media. He has performed and screened his films and videos at museums, galleries, microcinemas, and film festivals internationally, including recent events at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, The International Symposium of Electronic Art in Vancouver, Oak Cliff Film Festival, Chicago Underground Film Festival, San Francisco Cinematheque, and the Texas Biennial.

Swampy's Diaries

For the “bootleg artist” known as Swampy, the world is an endless living canvas. Variations on his signature “swampdonkey” tag — the skull of some imaginary tusked creature — can be found in almost every imaginable setting across America: dilapidated skyscrapers in Oakland, Calif.; train trestles in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; gallery walls in Atlanta or Brooklyn.
