Around America IV
Marking Time, Making Space

Screening Curated by Beth Stryker
Wednesday November 11, 2009 at 8 pm
Entrance: 3 000 LL

Following on the imperative of Matta-Clark and his fellow anarchitects to “[make] space without building it,” the artists in this screening perform critical, spectacular, and spatial interventions at various scales: of the body, the building, the city, and the landscape. Utilizing the moving image as a tool in the marking, mapping, and etching of site, these works explore America both through an examination of those spaces which are overlooked (the voids and the gaps which don’t appear in master plans), and through a study of the ways in which the act of cartography impartially inscribes and describes nation and place.
