Mr. Yellow Sweatshirt

Shot in the Roosevelt Ave/Jackson Heights station, this installation video captures the tide of New Yorkers streaming through an entrance to the subway system in what the filmmakers refer to as a “collective ballet.”


Eva Davidova’s participatory installation playfully incorporates both ancient myth and contemporary reality, highlighting the theme of interdependent responsibility in the wake of ecological disaster.


David Levine’s Dissolution is a jewel-box sculpture that conjures the past and future of the moving image. A 20-minute film played on a loop, it draws on the central conceit of iconic 1980s movies and TV shows such as Tron and Max Headroom: human characters who find themselves dematerialized and confined within the interior worlds of electronic devices.

Join us Sunday, January 14, from 2 to 5 p.m., in celebrating the birthday of civil rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a talk, tours, media-making activities, and more.

The Taste of Things

An epicurean feast for the senses set in late nineteenth century that’s also a profoundly moving film about how we create meaning and sustain happiness, The Taste of Things, starring Juliette Binoche and Benoît Magimel was the deserved winner of the Best Director prize for Tran Anh Hung at the Cannes Film Festival.
