TOUGH STUFF FROM THE BUFF
Experimental & Activist Video
from the fringes of Buffalo, NY
artist/curator Dave Gracon will
be on hand for a Q&A
Sunday, December 20th, 2009 at 8pm
Out of the post-industrial ghost-lands of Buffalo, NY a media scene has emerged with an urgency, tradition and aesthetic all its own.
With roots in early media activism of the 1970s, and supported by a network of artist-run initiatives, the city has only recently started to become recognized for its lo-fi, experimental and, above all,
uncompromising body of film and video. This collection acknowledges the origins of this tradition, while focusing on contemporary examples of those persevering against the odds of creating media in a dying rustbelt town.
Featuring works by: Esther Johnson, Chris Ernst, Tony Conrad, Marc Moscato, Critical Art Ensemble, Paris Henderson, Terry Cuddy, Kelly Spivey, Julie Perini, Meg Knowles, David Gracon, Stephanie Gray & Gabriella Citriniti
This event was funded by NYSCA and the Experimental Art Center
