Moving Images: Archives To Audience
Unseen films, including South Florida and Caribbean-centric home movies and amateur film â€œarrangements,â€ will be screened in a new media exhibition space, The Screening Room on Thursday, April 23 at 7:00 and 8:00 PM in Miamiâ€™s Wynwood Art District. Selected from the collections of the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives by artist and guest curator Barron Sherer, the films are 16mm preservation prints, each the end result of laborious and expensive photochemical restoration. Two reels of film will be projected in a diptych â€“ two images running side by side. The silent films will be accompanied by artist David Brieske, who will spin mood and tone-appropriate and experimental musical accompaniment culled from his collection of esoteric LPs.
