The Grand Bizarre (Filmmaker in Person!)

Saturday, May 28, 2022, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(Jodie Mack, US 2018, 61 min., 16mm)

Join us for a special one-night screening of artist Jodie Mack's 16mm experimental film The Grand Bizarre and an accompanying short film.

A postcard from an imploded society. Bringing mundane objects to life to interpret place through materials, The Grand Bizarre transcribes an experience of pattern, labor, and alien[-]nation[s]. A pattern parade in pop music pairs figure and landscape to trip through the topologies of codification. Following components, systems, and samples in a collage of textiles, tourism, language, and music, the film investigates recurring motifs and how their metamorphoses function within a global economy.

After the films, the artist will join Assistant Curator Gordon Nelson on stage for a Q&A.
