THE ORIGINS OF FILM #1 – TEATRINO OF PALAZZO GRASSI

NERO is pleased to announce the live streaming of the new cycle of three conferences and screenings curated by Philippe-Alain Michaud for the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi, in collaboration with the University Iuav in Venice, Dipartimento di Culture del Progetto – Laboratorio di teoria delle immagini.

The first conference will be held tomorrow, Thursday, March 13, at 6pm: Philippe-Alain Michaud meets Ben Russell 

The talk will be available through a live stream on NEROMAGAZINE.IT (follow this LINK) and on the website of Palazzo Grassi.

The origins of film is a cycle of three conferences and screenings curated by Philippe-Alain Michaud, curator at the Centre Pompidou, and organized in collaboration with the University Iuav in Venice, Dipartimento di Culture del Progetto – Laboratorio di teoria delle immagini.  These three events represent an opportunity to explore the origins of cinematic production through the works of three contemporary artists-filmmakers, who often get around the history of cinema and find inspiration in the history of painting, in anthropology and in exact sciences.

Ben Russell was born in 1976 in Chicago, United States, where he lives and works. His films, installations and performances foster a deep engagement with the history and semiotics of the moving image. Between art and cinema, his work investigates the historical and conceptual relationships between early cinema, documentaries and structuralist filmmaking. His works are concerned with ritual, communal spectatorship and the pursuit of a “psychedelic ethnography”.
