St. Cecilia's Gallery
21 Monitor St., Brooklyn, NY
Saturday, February 5, 12-10pm.
Sunday, February 6, by appointment.
Matinee, a group exhibition of film and video, will be held on Saturday,
February 5th, 2011, at the St. Cecilia's Gallery in Brooklyn, New York.
The film and video works in Matinee consider or incorporate the environment
in which they are viewed. They may physically involve the theater space,
question the impact of the viewing conditions on one's experience of the
work, or otherwise engage the space outside the screen. Taking inspiration
from the often flawed and problematic conditions for watching and exhibiting
film and video in a gallery setting, and the stark contrast of St. Cecilia's
Gallery to such white cube spaces, these works activate their surroundings
and are activated by their context. This premise is open to interpretation,
so that each work and each gallery room has a distinctly different feel.
Running all afternoon and into the night, visitors are encouraged to meander
through the exhibition at their leisure, theater-hopping as they go.
