Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art + Design Presents Films for ONE to EIGHT PROJECTORS
Roger Beebe's Films for ONE to EIGHT PROJECTORS
Miami, October 8, 2013 -
Miami Dade College’s (MDC) Museum of Art + Design (MOAD), in partnership with New World School of the Arts (NWSA) at MDC, will present Films for ONE to EIGHT PROJECTORS, an experimental film screening and performance by Roger Beebe. The one-night-only performance will be held at 7 p.m.,
Thursday, Oct. 17, at New World School of the Arts studios and exhibition space – ARTSEEN, located in Miami’s Wynwood Arts District. The performance is free and open to the public.
Films for ONE to EIGHT PROJECTORS expands the Museum’s support of projects presented outside the traditional gallery setting. With this latest creation, Beebe presents a program and performance of his recent multi-projector films to Miami, where he explores the possibilities of using multiple projectors—running as many as eight projectors simultaneously.
Beebe received a BA from Amherst College in 1993 and a PhD from the Literature Program at Duke University in 2000. He has also studied at the University of Grenoble, the University of California at Berkeley, and the École Normale Superieure.
His films and videos have screened on six continents (including Antarctica). They have also played on the CBS Jumbotron in Times Square, at the Museum of Modern Art, and at Anthology Film Archives as well as at hundreds of festivals including Rotterdam, Sundance, the European Media Arts Festival (EMAF), and New York Underground.
