After Dark:  After Dark: Illusions: Alexa Meade (Clip)
Running Time:
00:02:00
Watch celebrated artist Alexa Meade transform a live model into a seemingly two-dimensional tableau. Reversing the tradition of trompe l’oeil, the Renaissance painting technique in which objects appear real, Alexa Meade painstakingly applies acrylic paint onto actual people and objects, creating illusions of seamless, two-dimensional portraits. Unified by bold brushwork reminiscent of mid-20th-century painting styles, her subjects appear flattened, as if painted on canvas, even when viewed from different angles. Meade’s work invites a deep exploration into the nature of perception, the role of photography in viewing ephemeral artworks, and the sudden intimacy of portraiture.

After Dark:  Extended Cinemas 2015 (Clip)
Running Time:
00:02:41
Immerse yourself in visual storytelling that extends the possibilities of cinema. See aspects of film rarely displayed: unusual film formats with Dino Everett and an insider view into projectionists’ techniques with Paul Clipson. Enter worlds created by Elise Baldwin—investigating collective memory—and by Wet Gate, a 16mm projector–playing ensemble. Experience Thad Povey and Mark Taylor’s multiturntable record player, the realization of their near-identical dreams, and Tooth’s multiprojector dreamscape installation. Play with the Eunoics Light Club as they summon seemingly living forms using lenses, filters, and mirrors. Debate the merits of short films with Brian Darr and make your own cinematic toys and sound effects. Finally, make your exploration of film not just figurative but literal by seeking—and finding—four films shown in the museum’s out-of-the-way corners.
