Institute of Contemporary Art
ICA @ 50 Exhibition
Locally Localized Gravity & Time Farmers
I was able to take the Time Farmers program to the ICA to share with its first east coast audience! Thanks to Grace Ambrose for programming Time Farmers as their final summer screening on the terrace with ice cold beer & fancy popsicles. Big thanks to my art kin Thom Lessner for suggesting Time Farmers to Grace. The screening was a compliment to a show featuring an archive of work by Space 1026 artist and that was a real honor because Space 1026 has had a huge influence on me since I first had a show there in 2002.
There was a great turnout on this hot summer evening and I finally got to meet the only one of the filmmakers in the Time Farmers program who I'd never met; Jennifer Levonian. Jennifer told me about the fantastic new experimental animation collective she had recently helped to found along with Harvey Benschoter and others called OOF (Out Of Frame). It was inspired by SEAT (Seattle Experimental Animation Team). If you are in Philly, keep an eye out in case they are having an animation screening while you are in town!
