Artprojx presents
The Miami and Moscow Film Selections
Artist Sound of Film
curated by David Gryn

with a Miami Moscow Mix playlist by Max Reinhardt

 

Friday 12 September 8.30pm

Bermondsey Project, 46 Willow Walk, London. SE1 5SF

 

The films selected are highlights of works that were originally selected and curated by David Gryn for the Film programme at Art Basel in Miami Beach over the last 4 years. The films were all played on the New World Symphony Center’s screening wall in Soundscape Park during the annual art fair. This selection was played outdoors in Moscow as part of the Museum Nights in May 2014 along with DJ Max Reinhardt.

These works all engage with music, rhythm and sound and remain resonant from their initial playing. They all have a power that is far beyond just the work, one that creates lingering memory with the viewer long after the work has been seen and finished. The selection of these was driven by their sound, engagement and that the language needed to digest these works is that of audio-visual. These works reflect on the current trends and modes of communication such as YouTube, TV, animation, gaming, social media and used to create new images, sounds and unexpected connections.
