“NP CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER LAUNCHES NEW MEDIA SPACE WITH RARE FILM BY AWARD-WINNING FILMMAKER IN QUEER PROGRAM.
October 2, 2010 New York: Two experimental queer works will inaugurate the new media room at NP Contemporary Art Center on Thursday, Oct. 21st, 2010. The title, ‘What Is Life Without The Living?’ misremembers the opening lyric to the theme of Imitation of Life. The tune hauntingly floods Luther Price’s A. Alongside David Scheid’s video, Margot Kidder, these works reconstruct Hollywood from a space of queer fantasy with their drag and collage editing tactics. The event is curated by programmer and moving-image scholar Bradford Nordeen, featuring a very special digital introduction by critic and author Kevin Killian and a post-screening discussion with David Scheid.
What Is Life Without the Living is a touring program that has seen screenings at Artists’ Television Access in San Francisco and Mandrake in Los Angeles. The New York event will be accompanied by a free publication of images, illustrations, an essay, and artist writings designed by Deric Carner.”
