NOTE: Venue open at 6pm for reception preceding 7pm screening.

The evening’s presentation will include a program of artist made film and videos that explore human relationships to interior spaces, objects, decor and furniture—the things that give us comfort, status and affirm identity or conversely, become refuse, expose our fragility, leave us alienated or economically spent. What Have We Here examines the consequences of desire and consumerism while others offer philosophical musings about perception and tensions of cultural markers represented in domestic spaces and objects we covet. SCREENING: Catalogue, Vol.6 (2016) and Catalogue, Vol.10 (2017) by Dana Berman Duff; Posthaste Perennial Pattern (2010) by Jodie Mack; Furniture Poetry (1999) by Paul Bush; The Hunch that Caused the Winning Streak and Fought the Doldrums Mightily (2010) by Stephanie Barber; The Weight of Things (2015) by Dana Levy; Upholstered Furniture In The Grass: Polstermöbel im Grünen (1984) by Christine Noll Brinckmann and... a super secret surprise!
