Friday Sept 30th
doors at 7, films at 7:30pm
Live expanded cinema performance
& Works for single channel video
Artist in attendance + Post-screening Q&A
Barnard’s expanded cinema performance includes a rendition of ‘InCamera’ - an improvisational performance that uses video sampling and audience participation to create a dynamic live cinema experience. Starting with no content, Barnard uses a copy stand camera system to rephotograph objects that the audience brings into the performance. For this performance, he will be exploring light as a subject matter and is requesting that audience members bring in objects that either emit light or allow light to pass through them. In addition, several single channel videos will be screened during the evening that highlight past projects that explore the terrain of expanded cinema and live audio visual performance.
Morgan Barnard is a Santa Fe based artist working in the areas of public art, interactive media, immersive installations and live cinema. His work offers audiences unique moments of observation and reflection through the use of lighting and projection. His studio in New Mexico is focused on creating work that combines interactivity, data-visualization, real-time systems and experimental digital techniques.

JAN (exact date tba) - The home videos of NELSON SULLIVAN - Sullivan (1948 – 1989) was an American videographer who documented the art & club scenes of Downtown New York during the 1980s. His videos, recorded on early VHS technology with a handheld camcorder, chronicle both nightlife events & the everyday trials and tribulations of his friends, many of whom would become famous queer icons. Sullivan’s often-overlooked treasure trove of home video work is not only an amazing window into 80s queer New York, but also a pioneering body of work in the home video / diary filmmaking canon (some have called him the first ever vlogger). “If you really want to know what it was like in the 1980s in New York, you have to watch Nelson Sullivan’s videos.” –Marvin Taylor, NYU Fales Library and Special Collections --- “Nelson Sullivan’s camcorder videos of 1980s queer New York are a rare cultural treasure.” –Slate --- “He was our ambassador.” –RuPaul
