Film Screenings: "After Effects" at Artis Cinema

9th of December at 16-20 in Artis Cinema

Center for Contemporary Art, Estonia and Art in General (New York) invite you to a screening series titled After Effects, which presents recent video works by contemporary artists from New York and beyond. The focus of the series is on digital culture and the effects of technologies on contemporary society. 

After Effects is curated by Executive Director and Curator of Art in General, Laurel Ptak, who in her selection of works has emphasized the dialectical tension in our current relationship to technology. While created in the name of progress to attend to our human desires, how do objects, interfaces, processes, aesthetics and norms ultimately reshape these desires, and—in turn—reshape us?

The curator of the screening series Laurel Ptak will present a brief introduction to the program and artists.

Artists: Zach Blas, Tyler Coburn, João Enxuto, Erica Love, Pedro Neves Marques, Wyatt Niehaus, Elizabeth Orr, Sondra Perry, Jemima Wyman.

Entrance: free

The event is supported by the Cultural Endowment of Estonia and Trust for Mutual Understanding.

Thanks to Marika Agu, Lina Alfonso, Maria Arusoo, Marta Cacciavillani, Patrick Jaojoco, Kaarin Kivirähk and the artists.
