Column: SAGE aims to increase viewing opportunities | local entertainment
Lights. Camera. Stock! Classic cues for the performing arts, but at SAGE Community Arts, these are key ingredients for our upcoming exhibition “Light Spill” by Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder. The New York-based artists have been collaborators since 2000.
Gibson and Recoder bring together the rich traditions of experimental film, particularly its structuralist and materialist strands, and the multimodal sensibility of expanded cinema that emerged in the 1960s, in which the moving image was woven into the labile space of performance, sound and interaction with the public. Their larger work explores this interstice between avant-garde film practice and the incorporation of moving images and temporal media into the art gallery.
