About the event

First on this evening’s double bill, Jenny Perlin will perform On Twilight Arc, an excursion into the early days of film and the many fantastic precursors to the color and sound of the technology we know today. The performance will be followed by a screening of Beatrice Gibson's films Crippled Symmetries and Performance for a Rich Man, which reflect on the language of music and film, taking William Gaddis’ JR as a point of departure. Solo for a Rich Man takes place at a playground in Shoreditch contemporary London and includes music by Fluxus artist George Maciunas and Mieko Shiomi’s Disappearing Music for Face.

Jenny Perlin's film Twilight Arc can be seen in the exhibition "Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art 1905-2016" at the Whitney Museum of Art from October 28, 2016-February 5, 2017.
