Artist Wes Kline will be recreating the unproduced film â€œMinotaurâ€ by the mid-century avant garde filmmaker Hans Richter, using Project 924 as a collage space for re-imagining the film as a series of performative vignettes and architectural photographic archives strewn around the exhibition space. Kline produces a series of structures, video vignettes, photographs, archives, drawings, and performances that collapse the modernist figure of the â€œMinotaurâ€ (a favorite of the Surrealists, Picasso, and many others) into a series of participatory moments. Instead of the fragmented figure of the Minotaur in a labyrinth, the viewer will enwounter an opportunity to â€œrepair,â€ â€œarchive,â€ or â€œrestructureâ€ the Minotaur as a site of exchange and production. The title MINOTAUROCRACY humorously alludes to this â€˜production,â€™ recalling the image of the Minotaur as not a fragment, but as a plurality.
Also on January 16 at 924, Kenny Millions: Unplugged will be held at the Audiotheque at 8pm. Take part in this rare opportunity to experience the talents of Kenny Millions in a uniquely intimate solo saxophone performance presented by Steve Malagodi + subtropics.org at Audioteque, 924 Lincoln Road #201, Miami Beach 33139.
