In conjunction with the exhibition The Way Beyond Art 4: Infinite Screens, the Wattis Institute presents weekly talks and panel discussions in which CCA faculty and Bay Area artists and programmers examine issues surrounding moving-image works in the age of infinite screens.

TONIGHT: CCA Film and Fine Arts faculty member Lynn Marie Kirby will examine how film and video works today have moved beyond the classical understanding of cinematic time and become open-ended digital structures that “cut against the grain of human temporal ratios.” These new forms of working in time extend human perception of time. Kirby will show examples of contemporary artists’ work as well as her own.

Infinite Screens is co-organized with the Film Program at CCA.

The Infinite Screens exhibition and public programs are made possible through the support of the Kadist Art Foundation; Steve Turner Contemporary, Los Angeles; and a Cinema Visionaries grant.

Founding support for CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts programs has been provided by Phyllis C. Wattis and Judy & Bill Timken. Generous support provided by Grants for the Arts / San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund and the CCA Curator’s Forum.
