Artist's Perspective: Mike Hoolboom: Free lecture @ Frist: Feb 14, 2009

Artist's Perspective: Mike Hoolboom
Saturday, February 14, 2:00 p.m.
Auditorium, FREE

Join experimental filmmaker Mike Hoolboom as he discusses his work. Hoolboom’s Imitations of Life
integrates compelling images drawn from mainstream cinema, newsreels, and science fiction films. In it, sequences of deconstructed and recombined imagery, variously haunting and playful, hypnotically cast the cumulative effects of film as a force that shapes our subconscious image of self in relation to the stream of history and the trajectory of humanity.
