Four films, video held in conjunction with gallery exhibit

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

FREDERICK, Md.—A film and video screening featuring works by four artists will be shown Nov. 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Whitaker Campus Center at Hood College.

The film, ending, showcases the works of Terence Hannum, Irena Knezevic, Michael Morris and Alexander Stewart. The screening is in conjunction with the exhibition, The The The The Hush, on display in the College's Hodson Gallery until Nov 23.

The short video and 16mm films range from texture-rich experimental and abstract film to subtitled narrative and appropriation-based video. The four pieces in this screening illustrate and expand upon the concepts of fear and anxiety in the global post-9/11, recession and climate change-influenced culture, themes that are also depicted in the exhibit artworks.

Hannum has exhibited his work at Western Exhibitions in Chicago; Apex Art in New York; and Schalter in Berlin, among many others. His work is also exhibited in The The The The Hush.

Knezevic is a visiting professor at Northwestern University's Department of Art Theory and Practice and has shown her work widely, including at University Galleries in Normal, Ill., and at the upcoming Performa 14 in New York.

Morris' work has been screened at The Lab in San Francisco, the Dallas Museum of Art and many others. He also curates experimental video for the Angelica Film Center in Dallas.

Stewart's short films have been shown internationally, including the International Film Festival in Rotterdam; the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City; and the touring festival, ImageForum, in Japan.
