The Art of Vision: Honoring

Stan Brakhage Co-presented with the Academy of Motion Picture arts and Sciences and Los Angeles Filmforum Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

With a lifelong devotion to filmmaking as a radical and resolutely personal practice, Stan Brakhage (1933–2003) completed more than 350 films that explored cinematic vision as a means of poetic expression and pushed the boundaries of cinema as art. Defying traditional film language, his distinctive techniques—expressive camera movement, intricate editing, subtle superimpositions, photographic abstractions and painting directly on the film surface—contributed to a singular, humanizing sensibility. Ten years after his death, Brakhage is celebrated on the occasion of his 80th birthday with two programs of major early works: a rare screening of The Art of Vision (1961–65, 255 mins.), his monumental and deeply meditative deconstruction of Dog Star Man, and a second evening devoted to eight short masterworks newly restored by the Academy Film Archive, from the seminal psychodrama Reflections on Black (1955), to his landmark ode to subjective seeing, Anticipation of the Night (1958).

Jean Rouch

on the Gold Coast Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

Jaguar (shot 1954–55, premiered 1967) preceded by Les Maîtres fous (1955) These two films compose a fascinating portrait of the dislocation created by colonialism in Africa. Once controversial, but now an anthropological classic, Les Maîtres fous (28 mins.) documents a Hauka possession ceremony, during which the participants mimic figures of the colonial power. With Jaguar (90 mins.), Rouch invented ciné-fiction, a mix of ethnology and improvised narrative. A gallant public writer, a shepherd and a fisherman—portrayed respectively by non-professional actors Damouré Zika, Lam Ibrahim Dia and Illo Gaoudel— leave their village to try their luck on the fabled Gold Coast (modern-day Ghana). In Accra, Damouré becomes a “jaguar”—a city slicker. As sync sound was not available then, the three buddies jovially comment on the action after the fact, observing that the Brits royally conned Africa out of its gold. Presented as part of Farther than Far: The Cinema of Jean Rouch, in association with the French Film & TV Office–Consulate General of France in Los Angeles, the UCLA Film & Television Archive and Los Angeles Filmforum. Additional series screenings take place January 25–February 23. Funded in part with generous support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud.

Marc Bamuthi Joseph/ The Living Word Project red, black & GREEN: a blues Directed by Michael John Garcés featuring an installation by Theaster Gates Alpert Award Artist–The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series–Theater–Multimedia

Alpert Award-winning theater artist Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s soul-stirring performance draws on hip-hop’s interdisciplinary foundations to create a kaleidoscopic investigation of collective responsibility in an era of climate change. Within an evolving modular stage set-cum-art installation—an interactive shotgun cabin constructed from reclaimed materials by celebrated visual artist Theaster Gates—Bamuthi and his performers deliver powerful verse and impassioned songs that examine notions of “living green,” and what that might mean to communities under social and economic duress. Backed by documentary video, red, black & GREEN: a blues is shaped by stories gathered during urban eco-festivals organized by the artist in cities across the U.S., and offers an expansive vision of environmental justice, social ecology and what it means to nurture ourselves and the planet. Directed with passionate urgency by Michael John Garcés, Bamuthi is joined onstage by a magnetic and multitalented cast, including Tommy Shepherd (a.k.a. Emcee Soulati), Traci Tolmaire and Yaw. Executive Producer: MAPP International Productions Funded in part with generous support from The Herb Alpert Foundation. The Alpert Award in the Arts, a fellowship program that supports innovative practitioners in the fields of dance, film/video, music, theater and visual arts, is administered by CalArts on behalf of The Herb Alpert Foundation.

Alexander Mackendrick: A Centennial Celebration Conversations–Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

The esteemed director of Sweet Smell of Success (1957) and The Ladykillers (1955), Alexander Mackendrick (1912–93) was a pivotal figure in the history of CalArts, and his work and writings remain a major influence on contemporary narrative directors and screenwriters. For this celebration of the artist’s multifaceted contributions, Paul Cronin, editor of Mackendrick’s seminal book On Film-Making, is joined by two CalArts alums, director James Mangold and author and filmmaker F.X. Feeney. Together they honor the man who, as dean of the School of Film/Video at CalArts and throughout his more than 30 years of teaching, shaped an institution and inspired generations of filmmakers. This lively discussion reveals Mackendrick through personal reminiscences, film clips and critical observations on his work as a filmmaker, teacher and theorist.

CEAIT Festival 2013 Music

The two different programs that make up this year’s festival from the CalArts Center for Experiments in Art, Information and Technology (CEAIT) offer a triad of avant-garde techno musicmakers. One night features Bonnie Jones, whose “no-input” style of sound-text performance makes use of internal feedback mixers, cracked delay pedals, hacked electronics and other custommade instruments as she short-circuits her board and plays her electronics in ways that manufacturers would never recommend. A second night features Keith Fullerton Whitman’s compositionally masterful electronica, which generates “shimmering drones and deep waves of sound,” together with improvised guitar. Both nights are anchored by selections from South Korea’s Balloon & Needle record label, founded by members of Puredigitalsilence and Piwacot to highlight the pioneering musicians of Seoul’s burgeoning experimental music scene.

Opening reception: Sat, Feb 9, 6–9pm Art

Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz is an examination of the unlikely points of convergence in Poland and Iran’s economic, social, political, religious and cultural histories, from 17th-century Sarmatism to the 21stcentury Green Movement. For the most comprehensive exhibition of works from Friendship of Nations, Slavs and Tatars, an international collective of artists, designers and writers, presents a range of sculptural objects, woven tapestries, lecture performances and photographic murals that address how the two countries’ respective efforts toward self-determination have shaped the larger geopolitical landscape, punctuating the major narratives of Communism and Islam in the 20th and 21st centuries. Devoting its researchbased practice to the area commonly referred to as Eurasia, a geography the group identifies as being “east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China,” Slavs and Tatars’ works span disparate media and graphic traditions to focus on the oft-forgotten sphere of exchange among Slavs, Caucasians and Central Asians. Funded in part with generous support from Étant donnés, the French-American Fund for Contemporary Art, as part of Ceci n’est pas… Art Between France & Los Angeles. Additional support provided by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute.

Nancy Buchanan Lines of enquiry Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

Since the early 1970s, Nancy Buchanan’s work in video has been marked by her consistent exploration of the spaces between political essay, poetry and performance. This screening presents an overview of her remarkable career, starting with early videos that disrupt representational stereotypes through feminist critique, such as Primary and Secondary Spectres (1989), to her polemics of the 1980s and ’90s that address such issues as real estate speculation and U.S. interventionism in Latin America, including Sightlines (1989) and American Dream #7 (1991). Other pieces combine political awareness with dry humor (Pursed, 2003–4; Horses, 2009), as well as insightful explorations of cultures at times of momentous changes, such as her collaboration with Sandra Agalidi, Windows and Mirrors (1995), shot in Romania.

The Radiant U.S. Premiere Film/Video

Commissioned as part of dOCUMENTA (13), The Radiant explores the aftermath of March 11, 2011, when the Tohoku earthquake triggered a tsunami that killed many thousands and caused the partial meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant on the east coast of Japan. A film essay burdened by the difficult task of representing the invisible aftermath of nuclear fallout, The Radiant travels through time and space to invoke the historical promises of nuclear energy and the threats of radiation that converge in Japan’s illuminated cities and evacuated villages in the months immediately following the disasters. The Otolith Group’s cinematic document offers a glimpse into the shape and presence of an unseen entity and its abstract manifestation through visual phenomena.

Tokyo-based choreographer and video artist Hiroaki Umeda creates mesmerizing visual environments for his visceral solo works, appearing as a fine-spun swirl of movement in a digital storm of light and sound— an elusive figure, by turns frantic and still, awash in pulsating electronic waves. In a program of acclaimed companion pieces, Haptic and Holistic Strata, Umeda’s distinctive dance vocabulary draws on a range of butoh, ballet and hip-hop. He conceives his interdisciplinary events as sensorial wholes, creating the beats and sonic textures, as well as the entrancing video and lighting effects. Designed to elicit primal emotion, Umeda’s work is minimalist and radical, subtle and violent, abstract yet precise, and thrillingly physical.

Early Plays

Based on the Glencairn Plays by Eugene O’Neill Directed by Richard Maxwell of New York City Players Produced by The Wooster Group With performers from both companies Theater

The Wooster Group has invited Richard Maxwell of New York City Players to direct Eugene O’Neill’s early “Glencairn” plays— Bound East for Cardiff (1914), The Long Voyage Home (1917), and The Moon of the Caribbees (1918). The Early Plays take O’Neill’s tales of sailors as a base to explore themes of longing and eternity. Dark episodes showing the underside of turnof-the-century maritime life—brawls, dances and carousing— are staged with a quotidian grace, allowing these simple stories to resonate emotionally. The episodes are threaded together with haunting melodies written by Maxwell; the cast features performers from both companies. Early Plays is made possible with funding from the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Theater Pilot, with lead funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Ben Russell Altered States Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

This program, a slightly modified version of one shown at the Centre Pompidou last fall, presents a selection of films from Ben Russell’s ongoing TRYPPS series, including River Rites, Black and White Trypps Number Three, Ponce de León, Trypps #6 and Trypps #7. Shot mostly in 16mm, though formally quite distinct, these short films “enunciate a ‘psychedelic ethnography’ —in which the trip is both the means and the end,” Russell writes, noting that his films have “expanded their formal and critical language to include the various poles of action painting, avant-garde cinema, portraiture, stand-up comedy, global capitalism, and trance-dance à la Jean Rouch.” The evening concludes with the two-projector performance The Black and the White Gods. Russell was listed among the “50 Best Filmmakers Under 50” by Cinema Scope. In person: Ben Russell Funded in part with generous support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

In Search of UIQ

World Premiere Film/Video

Following the publication of A Thousand Plateaus, a work that marked a highpoint in his creative partnership with Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari began working on a screenplay for a science-fiction film, Un amour d’UIQ. This script, which preoccupied Guattari’s attention for seven years, represented a blueprint for a subversive popular cinema through an imagined hyperintelligent infra-cellular life substance—“UIQ” (Universe Infra-Quark)—capable of controlling global communications networks and plugging into the “desiring machines” of a community of squatters. After discovering the unpublished script, Paris-based artists and filmmakers Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson initiated a multiform research project that culminates in their film essay In Search of UIQ, which takes on Guattari’s central quandary: how to give shape to a bodiless entity, seemingly without spatial or temporal limits.

Lou Harrison: A World of Music Music–Film/Video

A Los Angeles premiere screening celebrates American composer, artist, writer and activist Lou Harrison (1917–2003), who forged a new course for 20th-century music with hauntingly beautiful pieces using western, eastern, and custom-made instruments inspired by Javanese gamelan and the Chinese zheng. Directed by filmmaker and music producer Eva Soltes,  the feature-length documentary Lou Harrison: A World of Music is drawn from more than 25 years and 300 hours of performances, rehearsals and interviews conducted with Harrison, his contemporaries and his life partner William Colvig. This extraordinary film is preceded by a performance of Harrison’s Suite for Violin and American Gamelan (1973), demonstrating his signature use of Pacific Rim-inspired microtones, performed by violinist Mark Menzies and CalArts percussionists on “Old Granddad,” a gamelan built to Harrison’s specifications.

Queer Sex Works: Money Power Sex Co-presented with Outfest Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

With a wide range of piercingly personal perspectives, this screening of experimental films made by queer artists explores a markedly different outlook about sex work. Be they strippers, hustlers, rent boys, go-go dancers, escorts, whores, pro-dommes, pornographers or rough trade, they do it for the money. Yet, unlike their straight counterparts, they are ”outsiders” in relation to the status quo. Sex work is a job with class, gender, race and power inequalities like any other, but with added social stigma, legal and, potentially, even physical danger. The program includes a reconstruction of the legendary A Fire in My Belly, A Work in Progress (1986–87) by David Wojnarowicz and The Fall of Communism as Seen in Gay Pornography (1998) by William E. Jones, among others. In person: Kristin “KP” Pepe and William E. Jones Funded in part with generous support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Curated by Kristin “KP” Pepe.

With six feature-length films and more than 70 shorts, Alpert Award recipient Kevin Jerome Everson has explored the multiple facets of African American life via a variety of formal approaches. Whether through his signature long shots, collage of archival sources or the re-enactment of fictional material that echoes the lives of his performers, Everson favors a strategy that interrupts the documentary impulse, abstracting everyday actions and statements into theatrical gestures. His works play with the ambivalent relationships between art and narrative, fact and fiction. This screening includes a selection of shorts, from the Lumière-inspired Workers Leaving the Job Site (2013), to a dark, witty homage to Chester Himes, Early Riser (2012), to an exploration of the world of black cowboys, Ten Five in the Grass (2012).

Permanence of the Theologico-Political? part of the Aesthetics and Politics Lecture Series Conversations

Political and social theorists Jean L. Cohen and Andrew Arato deliver lectures that critically examine the permanence of political theology in contemporary thought and institutions, in particular those associated with the legacy of Carl Schmitt. Together, these influential thinkers address the fact that positive reliance on political theology not only can have a profoundly authoritarian meaning, but could also be helpful in disguising and misrepresenting that meaning. The evening is introduced by CalArts’ Martín Plot and followed by a Q&A, with comments from Victoria Crespo of Morelos’ Universidad Autónoma and Enrique Peruzzotti of Universidad Torcuato Di Tella. Presented in conjunction with the Los Angeles release of Peruzzotti and Plot’s (eds.)

Experiences in Transformative Time: New Work by

Leighton Pierce Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

Leighton Pierce’s cinema transforms ordinary sounds and visual impressions into ecstatic experiences filled with new kinds of movements and sensory rediscoveries of the world. Often hovering between definition and abstraction, and between gestural implication and narrative meaning, his musical eye and ear find beauty and magic in everyday places and situations. Pierce’s work has been shown widely at festivals and museums, and this screening features two early 16mm films along with nine recent digital pieces, including Viscera, described by filmmaker Jon Jost as “an astonishing piece on the recreation of a presence through remnants of their being, memories of their gestures, as molded in the impressionistic contours of light. A film built upon cascading refractions. The film dissolves in the memory as one watches it…”

Lavine hosts a panel discussion that centers on the question, “What is the overarching role of artists in civic life and creative placemaking?” Joining the conversation are Kelley Lindquist, president of Artspace in Minneapolis and a developer of affordable artist housing throughout the U.S., and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne. Together, they explore issues of gentrification, reclamation and artists’ influence and impact on today’s urban fabric. In addition, the panel examines the ideas and opportunities driving the Broadway Arts Center, a proposed mixed-use development containing a black-box theater, an art gallery, creative commercial space and affordable housing for artists in downtown Los Angeles.

Cristy C. Road

TextaQueen

Legendary adventurers in queer literary performance, San Francisco’s  Sister Spit comes to Los Angeles with a vanload of multimedia, queer-centric brilliance. Hosted by the irrepressible Michelle Tea, this irreverent, wild, brainy and provocative extravaganza features established writers along with emerging queer and queer-influenced artists of all genders, including singer/songwriter/performance artist DavEnd, writers Danny LéVesque and Ali Liebegott, artist TextaQueen and graphic memoirist Cristy C. Road. Sister Spit’s 2013 line-up guarantees a raucous evening of butch gamblers, cranky mermaids, psychic hairdressers, accordion-wielding songstresses, punk-obsessed teens and post-apocalyptic heroes.

Cauleen Smith

Black Utopia LP (for Sun Ra) Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

“Her constellational approach to filmmaking parallels Sun Ra’s freestyle compositions and spiritual belief in the astral world, while reawakening the political possibilities of black experimental culture.” Art in America

Premiered at Chicago’s threewalls art space, Black Utopia LP is a deeply original off-shoot of the years of research artist and filmmaker Cauleen Smith devoted to Afrofuturism—a cultural movement that mixes science fiction, fantasy, non-Western religion and Afrocentrism. Chicago legend Sun Ra (1914–93) and his Arkestra were key figures in this movement. Smith produced over 800 35mm slides: images of objects found in archives, recorded in contemporary Chicago or appropriated from occult, astronomical, and historical sources. The slides are projected in a 90-minute performance to the sounds of both sides of an LP that Smith recorded—a collage of lectures, rehearsals and live performances by Sun Ra, mundane ephemera and commissioned contributions from Chicago artists Krista Franklin and Avery R. Young. In person: Cauleen Smith Funded in part with generous support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud.

wild Up Music

Known for producing visceral, convention-defying concert experiences, the daring Los Angeles modern music collective wild Up explores a range of influential Brooklyn-based contemporaries in this eclectic program presented in conjunction with the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s adventurous Brooklyn Festival. The collective’s artistic director and conductor Christopher Rountree leads varied groupings of more than 20 players and guest artists as they careen from J.S. Bach to They Might Be Giants, and beyond. New works by Matt Marks, Du Yun, David T. Little and others are part of this musical journey from classical roots, through twisted pop idioms and into a maelstrom of experimentalism, noise and multimedia. $20 [members $16]

EMP Pop Conference 2013 Conversations–Music

The EMP (Experience Music Project) Pop Conference brings together academics, critics, performers and dedicated fans in a rare common discussion. On the heels of a blowout gathering in New York last spring, this year’s conference expands its scope to include five different gatherings over the course of a single weekend in Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Cleveland and Seattle. REDCAT hosts day two of EMP L.A., organized around the theme “Locals Only: Pop and Politics in This Town.” Commandeering the “Locals Only” slogan— seen for years scrawled on renegade signs at certain L.A. beaches—EMP L.A. pays tribute to the importance of location, neighborhood and community in defining “minority majority” regions. The event’s panels and roundtables engage music and multimedia through academic, journalistic and aesthetic approaches. Co-sponsored by the CalArts Graduate Programs in Creative Writing and Aesthetics and Politics and the USC Dornsife Center for Feminist Research.

In these two nights of exceptional performances, Wolff pays tribute to fellow great Elliott Carter with a work played by the Formalist Quartet, followed by a world premiere of Nick Deyoe’s Lullaby 3, in the spirit of Wolff’s musical experimentation and featuring the Formalist Quartet with cellist Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick. A second don’t-miss evening of Wolff’s groundbreaking music is curated by renowned composer Michael Pisaro and includes the compelling and unique Changing the System (1974) and John Heartfield (2003), as well as the touching Trio V for James Tenney (2006), all heard for the first time on the West Coast.

The Otolith Group Neophyte Opening reception: Saturday, April 20, 6–9pm Art–Film/Video

Conceived as notes toward the making of a future film, a new project by London-based collective The Otolith Group treats the format of an exhibition as an exercise in writing, and attempts to give shape to preparatory notes, archival materials and preliminary sketches as a form of speculative screenplay or notebook-film. For their first work produced within the U.S., Neophyte is an inquiry into the gradual spiritualization of Capitalism, and the state of California as a test-ground for both the importation of Hindu guru culture and the ideology of post-war production in the 1960s and ’70s. The Otolith Group’s investigation into the cybernetic subcultures, musical presences and sentient entities distributed throughout the spiritual landscapes and industrial parks of Los Angeles and San Francisco proposes a possible future, envisioned through an improbable present. Hypothetically titled Neophyte, the project is the materialization of a cinema that documents its own quest for places, spaces and subjectivities yet to be defined. Funded in part with generous support from the Pasadena Art Alliance.

Guillermo Calderón Villa + Discurso Theater

Chilean director Guillermo Calderón’s lean, literary theater works are powerful explorations of political legacies distilled into tightly wrought drama. In this double bill, Calderón’s intimate and poetic language—demonstrated in the internationally acclaimed works Neva and Diciembre (seen at REDCAT in 2012 and 2011)—gives way to the cool complexities of public discourse. In Villa, three women gather around an architectural model of the Villa Grimaldi, a site where thousands were tortured and hundreds were “disappeared,” to debate the ideal adaptation of these blood-soaked facilities and grapple with a nation’s unwanted legacy. In Discurso, the same three actresses share the role of Michelle Bachelet, Chile’s recent president, to deliver an imagined farewell speech that abandons diplomatic parlance and reveals a leader’s aspirations, failures and humanity, amid the mechanizations of political life. Thur–Sat 8:30pm & Sun 3pm

Cabinets Of Wonder: Films and Performance by

Charlotte Pryce world premieres Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

Discoveries on the Forest Floor

Charlotte Pryce’s exquisitely detailed and evocatively structured short films suggest an alert daydreaming in which the documented and the imagined are juxtaposed. Her films offer fleeting illuminations at the periphery of vision, calling into question the “mechanical eye” of the lens and the chemical composition of the celluloid. The films use 16mm “chrome” stocks— now-extinct reversal color—which are hand-processed and optically reprinted. “Like the items in a Cabinet of Wonder, my subjects are specimens of philosophical musing: rootless plants, mysterious insects and curious glasses,” says Pryce. The program includes Concerning Flight: Five Illuminations in Miniature, Discoveries on the Forest Floor, The Parable of the Tulip Painter and the Fly, Curious Light, Looking Glass Insects, A Study in Natural Magic and a live magic lantern show. In person: Charlotte Pryce Funded in part with generous support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Curated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud.

Claude Lefort,

Thinker of the Political part of The Aesthetics and Politics Lecture Series Conversations

French philosopher Claude Lefort’s oeuvre developed over a period of six decades until his passing in 2010. His notions of “power as an empty place” and “the modern dissolution of the markers of certainty” have become radical and liberal democracy’s obligatory reference, as well as an unparalleled knot of intellectual confluence. For this panel discussion, Bernard Flynn of the New School for Social Research and Claudia Hilb of the Universidad de Buenos Aires debate Lefort’s phenomenological style and legacy as a political theorist and literary critic. With an introduction by CalArts’ Martín Plot and followed by a Q&A, the discussion is presented as part of a two-day symposium on the aesthetic character of politics in Hannah Arendt and Claude Lefort.

The Elegiac Visions of

Phil Solomon world premiere Film/Video–Jack H. Skirball Series

Since 1975, Phil Solomon has been making films that magically penetrate the surface of images and reveal depths of new poetic meaning. Solomon’s 16mm films imbue prerecorded imagery with fantastical sensual and dimensional qualities. His recent work extends these concerns into the digital realm, creating haunting landscapes that reawaken the mysteries of life and death, and of physical reality and alternative states. Solomon presents two masterful films, What’s Out Tonight is Lost (1983) and Psalm I: “The Lateness of the Hour” (1999), and four digital works, Innocence and Despair (2002), his reflection on 9/11, and In Memoriam (2005–09), a trilogy in memory of filmmaker Mark LaPore that mystically transforms backgrounds from the video game series Grand Theft Auto.

Rehearsals for Retirement

“Phil Solomon is known for his image alchemy… dreamlike works that reveal subterranean depths.”

Partch: Eroica Dances Music

In a welcome return, the Grammy-nominated ensemble devoted to the works of American composer and maverick musician Harry Partch performs a program centered on the Marimba Eroica—one of Partch’s custom-designed instruments. Weighing in at 847 pounds and eight feet in length, the Eroica generates tones even lower than the bass marimba. Partch wrote, “In the right room acoustically, the Eroica is felt through the feet, against the belly, and, if one sits on the floor, it ripples through [one’s] bottom. It is very difficult to put on tape, and especially, on records, with any fidelity.” Experience this rippling, earth-shaking concert event that includes the works Plectra and Percussion Dances and Dance Pantomime (King Oedipus).
