Through this series animation is presented as a political and personal act of expression. The works presented stress animation as a fertile terrain for experimentation and activism. The screening location and tactics are dependent upon the subjects and issues dealt with within the films produced allowing installation (gallery and outside locations) to become the primary presentation methodology instead of the festival model. The intent of presenting in an alternative model being to experience a greater sense of agency in determining how our films are to be made visible, to communicate with a different public, and to encourage discussion during the presentation process which the festival model does not foster.
Installations and Screenings: Saturday, May 3rd, 8-11 PM opening Sunday, May 4th, 1-5 PM gallery hours for viewing show
