PRESS RELEASE

1 February 2011

ARTPROJX CINEMA TO FEATURE OVER 90 ARTISTS’ FILMS & VIDEOS

IN NEW POP UP CINEMA VENTURE IN ASSOCIATION WITH

THE ARMORY SHOW AND VOLTA NY, MARCH 2011.

This March at the SVA Theatre in Chelsea, New York, Artprojx Cinema, a new collaborative venture with The Armory Show and VOLTA NY, will screen a program of over 90 artists’ films from over 20 participating galleries alongside a public program of artists’ films from leading international arts organizations and curators.

“We are delighted to collaborate with such an outstanding quality of artists, galleries and organizations from such a diverse scope”, says David Gryn, Director of Artprojx. “Artprojx Cinema is not only an important opportunity for participating galleries and arts organizations to screen their artist’s films within the focused context of the cinema but also for the collectors, dealers, curators, artists and film enthusiasts flocking to New York during the week of The Armory Show and VOLTA NY to see an exceptional program of artists’ film.”

Feedback from participating organizations, artists and galleries indicates that Artprojx Cinema is adding a much desired kudos and credibility to screenings of artists’ films and a new and valued initiative on the NY cultural landscape. “We are passionate about creating a new buzz around the art fairs, engaging with local artists and students and enabling them to be part of the excitement in the city. The cinema is free to everyone and we want as many people to see this fantastic program,” says David Gryn.

This new venture has already proved a huge success with galleries participating from 14 cities – New York (Allan Stone Gallery, Andrew Edlin Gallery, Charles Bank Gallery, Fredericks & Freiser Gallery, LTMH Gallery, Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, Number 35 Gallery, Peter Blum Gallery), Philadelphia (Fleisher/Ollman), Los Angeles (Susanne Vielmetter), Chicago (Rhona Hoffman Gallery), Oakland (Johannson Projects), London (Pilar Corrias, Nettie Horn, The Cynthia Corbett Gallery), Dublin (Kevin Kavanagh Gallery), Lisbon (Filomena Soares Gallery), Copenhagen (Galleri Christina Wilson, V1 Gallery), Lima (Galeria Lucia de la Puente), Helsinki (Galerie Forsblom), Vienna (Galerie Krinzinger), Berlin (Galerie Carlier-Gebauer) and Geneva (Gowen Contemporary).

Artprojx Cinema will be screening premieres of Matthew Day Jackson’s “In Search Of” presented by Peter Blum Gallery, New York and a documentary, “New York Influence City” produced by You Know Limited, London, which reflects on New York City by key figures of its prominent art scene.

Other highlights include screenings by Brent Green (Andrew Edlin Gallery, New York), Erik Schmidt (Galerie Krinzinger, Vienna / Galerie Carlier Gabauer, Berlin), George Kuchar (ADA Gallery, New York) and Jacob Boeskov (V1 Gallery, Copenhagen).

Artprojx Cinema Late Nights features: Alfred Leslie (Allan Stone Gallery, New York) and  João Pedro Vale (Filomena Soares Gallery, Lisbon) on Friday and Saturday.

Special artist focus screenings include films by Marie Losier, Terry Smith, boyleANDshaw and Jessica Voorsanger and selected programs curated by Adelaide Bannerman, Carolyn Monastra & Megan Cump and works from the collection of Kim Burgess-Driver.  Organizations such as Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI), New York, LUX, London, Video Data Bank, Chicago and Film & Video Umbrella, London, who are all leading lights in the support and distribution of artists films and videos will be taking part in the program. As well as this, Artprojx Cinema includes artists’ films from London based organizations tank.tv, Wellcome Collection, Filmarmalade, The Woodmill and Peckham Space, who are all key organizations in supporting artists’ film and commissioning new projects.

Artprojx Cinema has linked with the SVA Theatre in Chelsea to host the screenings. The cinema, a world-class cultural centre for the visual arts is both excellent in reputation and location.
