CONVERSATIONS AT THE EDGE:
ANDREW LAMPERT: TABLES TURNED
@ Gene Siskel Film Center/School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Thursday, October 9, 2014 at 6:30 PM

Artist, archivist, and curator Andrew Lampert is known for his live media performances and hilarious short films and videos, many of which cheekily turn “cinema” on its head. Lampert uses improvisation, unusual projector placement, and sets of game-like instructions to explore (and exploit) the dynamic relationships between projector, projectionist, audience, and screen. For CATE, Lampert creates a site-specific performance and shows a series of shorts, including EL ADIOS LARGOS (2013), an inspired reconstruction of Robert Altman’s 1973 feature THE LONG GOODBYE from imperfect source material. Various formats. (Amy Beste)

Andrew Lampert will be present for audience discussion.
