ODETTA presents Joanne Mattera’s From Dawn to Dusk & Steven Baris in the Flat Files

Thursday, October 10th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present From Dawn to Dusk – October 15 – November 16, 2019 at the 1st Dibs Gallery.

From morning’s first light, with traces of pinks and violets, into blues, greens, high noon’s purest yellows and reds, and receding into twilight’s violets and flashes of oranges with the sun’s final sizzle at the end of the day, we share an awareness of color’s ability to guide us through time.

Sunday, October 6th, 2019

Truth and Beauty Digital Gallery present an Exclusive online exhibition and Canadian Premiere MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE  Part III : Post – Cinema by Cindy Konits. It runs to 28 October 2019

 

The MEMOIRE INVOLONTAIRE project is a personal exploration of representation and memory in 8mm family film created in 1940 and interpreted in the digital age.

Cindy Konits –

 Through the gaze of a man operating an 8mm film camera long before my birth, I view both familiar and unknown adults interacting with each other and children in ways concerning but familiar. Slow motion playback of 1-hour-B&W and 1-hour-color film reveals detail such as large blue stripes in a wide ruffle sundress that bring to mind the blue couch next to a breezy open window where I sat, age 4, watching a black and white television with a man by my side – the filmmaker himself. Marcel Proust named this recognition of the past in the present moment Memoire Involontaire (In Search of Lost Time 1871-1922). (more…)
