Music Interiors Vol. 2: Interni Italiani 7


DJ mix of Italian ambient/minimalist/avant-garde music, mostly emanating from institutions supporting the arts in cities like Milan and Rome: theatre production soundtracks, video installations, architectural studies, etc.

Paul Clipson: Wilderness of Mirrors – NYC – 12.19 0


Saturday December 19, 7pm

Microscope is very pleased to welcome San Francisco-based artist Paul Clipson back to the gallery for an evening of new and recent Super 8 and 16mm film – screened in their original formats – presented with Mono No Aware. The program of works made over the past three years includes films in which “aspects of memory, dreams and recordings of the everyday are juxtaposed with densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments vast and small, all within a flowing formal and thematic experimental aesthetic that encourages unplanned-for results.”

The screening will be followed by a  Q&A with Paul Clipson.
$8 admission
Total running time: 60 minutes
Paul Clipson is a San Francisco-based filmmaker and experimental film artist whose work involves projected installation and live collaborative performances with sound artists and musicians. His largely improvised, in-camera-edited films bring to light subconscious preoccupations and unexpected visual forms. His works have been exhibited and performed both nationally and internationally at such festivals as the New York Film Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival, and the Rotterdam International Film Festival.
