NEW WORKS SALON XLI

Saturday, November 11 at 8 PM  

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission.

The New Works Salons series is a casual forum for the presentation and discussion of new works in film, video, sound, and performance, with local and visiting artists often in-person to introduce their work. This, the forty-first program in the series, will include Luciano Piazza’s new 16mm film Las Vegas in 16 Parts. Piazza says in this work: “I explore the endless spectacle of an organic machine fed with fear and desire. It is a film constructed upon documentary images that aspire to become a fiction of an invented city. My gaze oscillated between the point of view of the scriptwriter of the simulacrum and the point of view of those who live in the simulacrum. Instead of trying to extract from Vegas a model to critique our “connectivity to the real”, I consider Vegas a “liquid ever-changing mirror.” I am fascinated with the bittersweet desire to belong to something, to be a significant part of the tradition that will narrate history, to find our reflection in a shining symbol.” The program will include several other short films TBA.

This screening is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The objective is to talk about feminism - from art, from humor, from the everyday, from the margins, to make this festival a tool capable of questioning the social and cultural meaning of artistic practices as generators of critical thinking.”
