Make Your Own Fun: a one-night screening of film and video
made by founding members of art spaces in small cities
Saturday, May 1, 2004
Guild & Greyshkul is very pleased to announce its first public screening, “Make Your Own Fun.” Focusing on the efforts of artist-run exhibition spaces in six small
cities, “Make Your Own Fun” connects the ideals of Guild & Greyshkul to those of art spaces outside of New York. Affirming that the act of organizing, promoting and presenting local art events is a type of artwork, the screening features artists
whose work often exists in a self-contained cycle of creation and exhibition.
The program presents the do-it-yourself movement in young, experimental filmmaking and traces the effects each city has on its artists. Founding members of Space 1026 (Philadelphia, PA), Milhaus (Milwaukee, WI), The Dirt Palace (Providence, RI), Paragraph and Your Face (Kansas City, MO), Lump Gallery (Raleigh, NC), and Dos Pestaneos (Atlanta, GA) will be present to introduce their work and talk about the history of their art spaces.
Work by artists Andrew Jeffrey Wright, Tyson Reeder/Milhaus, Xander Marro, Cody Critcheloe, Jeremy S. Taylor, Hope Hilton and Scott Lawrence, among many others, will be screened.
Guild & Greyshkul is an artist-run gallery and studio founded in 2003 by Anya
Kielar, Sara VanDerBeek, and Johannes VanDerBeek.
“Make Your Own Fun” is curated by Sabrina Gschwandtner, a film/video artist who has organized screenings for Ocularis, Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), Printed Matter, and the Fritz Haeg Sundown Salon.
Admission: $6 per person. Total running time: 75 minutes.
