Public Program:
MIX NYC: Perspectacle Version 1.5
February 6 2009
MIX NYC presents a special encore presentation of a program originally curated by Joshua Thorson for the 2008 MIX Festival. Thorson has updated the menu of films for tonight’s program since the original screening last summer. Taking off from a universalized conception of “Queer,” Perspectacle Version 1.5 presents an argument about the “Queer” subject’s varying strategies for the encoding/decoding of narratives/narrativity and the perspectival advantage of such a position. Featuring works by Tony Oursler, Dale Hoyt, Cecilia Dougherty, Wynne Greenwood & K8 Hardy, Colin Campbell, Barry Shils with Ann Magnuson, Ryan Trecartin, Simon Hughes, Sarah McKiel, and Matthew Robert Lutz-Kinoy, among others.
