Program of events

7pm “Nothin’ Special”

A video screening curated by Jacob Ciocci of Paper Rad
One hour of videos from the sad lands of post-internet contemporary USA. Some of these artists I have met, others are YouTube apparitions, and others are complete mysteries, discovered, re-discovered, and lost again inside the internet’s caverns. Original or stolen footage, homemade or mass-produced, monumental or completely boring, there is no difference. A magical moment becomes meaningless, then rediscovered as a powerful ghost, then buried again-- all in the blink of an eye. Banal vs. Extraordinary, Derivative vs Original, Insane vs Normal, Real vs Fake, these distinctions don’t exist because we walk with all these spirits simultaneously.

Including work by:
John Michael Boling and Javier Morales (New York), Jesse Hulcher (Pittsburgh), John Kilduff (Youtube/California), Jesse Mclean (Pittsburgh), Shana Moulton (California), Nanny Lynn (Michigan), Happeh (Youtube/California), Guthrie Lonergan (California), Kathleen Daniel aka Silicious (Youtube/Germany)

Copy
Fuzzed out synths, layered melodies, drawn out bass sequences, and drum machine generated handclaps get the party moving PDX-style.
