Midwest sampler

Hello summer campers! I’m off tonight to Milwaukee to see family. While ashore I leave co-captain Libby steering the boat.

And I promise to report back on a film and video art exhibit I’m anxious to see: CUT/Film as Found Object organized by the Milwaukee Art Museum and MoCA, North Miami.

The exhibit has 14 works, all of which sample from film sources and twist it into…well, whatever they twist it into. The artists include Christian Marclay, Paul Pfeiffer, Douglas Gordon, Pierre Huyghe, some of my faves.
