I PRESENT TWO: BACK TO ABSTRACTION

Tuesday, January 17 at 8 PM

Join Shauna McGarry and Stacy Elaine Dacheux for the premiere night of a new film series! A local artist/filmmaker shows a new piece and presents two other works by artist/filmmakers that must be seen! Then, in the next month, one of those artists will present two other works and so on and so on. Our first featured filmmaker and curator, Stacy Elaine Dacheux, will screen her film, BACK TO ABSTRACTION, then present THE BAD HALF by Duncan Birmingham (IFC’s Maron, Sundance) and WE THE MASSES by Robyn O’Neil (Herzog’s Rogue Film School, Whitney Biennial). Conversations with filmmakers to follow. “I Present Two” hopes to start a wonderful and ongoing conversation between the film center, the artists we admire, and our community.

“I think art, if it’s meaningful at all, is a conversation with other artists. You say something, they say something, you move back and forth.” – John Baldessari

Using Back to The Future as a universal landscape, Stacy Elaine Dacheux’s autobiographical narrative travels from her teenage bedroom— to the hospice where she worked in her twenties— to a bar after her father’s death— pausing every few minutes to work in the studio and unpack her own associations with the concept of abstraction, not just in relation to art history, but life itself. With a subtle nod to John Baldessari, this ten minute short combines quoted and clipped bites with originally built footage and text to express how art theory translates from museums to our everyday struggle with intimacy. 

Doors 7:30 pm. $5 admission.
