Festival of (In)appropriation at 14 Pews
The latest edition of the Festival of (In)appropriation consists of 14 different works that comprise an approximately 90-minute program. The shortest of these, Celeste Fichter's Walking on Water, lasts just more than a minute and uses the theme from Hawaii Five-O to accompany the biblical tale of Jesus defying natural law. Soda_Jerk's The Time That Remains, a "spectral melodrama" starring several iterations of both Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, is the longest at 12 minutes.
The film festival is curated by Jaimie Baron, Lauren Berliner and Greg Cohen.
Cressandra Thibodeaux, 14 Pews executive director, will display her mixed media series titled Oil on Water, which are appropriated images of the BP Oil Spill. The collection was in a satellite art show at Art Basel in Basel, Switzerland, in June 2010.
