 is pleased to announce the second 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.

This second conference will be held next Thursday, March 20, at 6pm: Philippe-Alain Michaud meets Mark Lewis

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.

Born in 1958 in Hamilton, Canada, Mark Lewis currently lives and works in London, United Kingdom. He explores the cinematographic language by adopting an approach that consists in fragmenting films in different elements, to the point of creating a “simulacrum of cinema”. He often films contemporary cities, landscapes as well as climate and his works evoke the way in which technologies of the moving image have modified our perception and experience of time.
