Introductory Talk by Festival Curator Liena Vayzman
Join us for a talk by Liena Vayzman and the screening of work from the Crystal Palace Experimental Film and Video Festival. This is a cutting edge film and video art presentation organized on the theme of the crystalline. This program will introduce audiences to up and coming and established avant-garde film and video artists. The crystal-themed, crystallizing, and multi-faceted video art and experimental films in this festival take as points of departure the cultural, scientific, spiritual, and mathematical associations of crystals, gems, and glass. Crystal balls and handmade prisms, shamanic journeys and Indian salt mines, psychedelic Crystal Light drink mix and Victorian animation, mirrors on 16mm and windows on HD — and even crystals grown on a celluloid filmstrip—all glimmer on our magic screen.
The first festival is originated at ArtSpace New Haven.
This event is open to the public and all enrolled students, but registration is required.
