Am I Repeating Yourself?

Three nights of artists’ films linked to our current exhibition. Affectionate Homages and Hostile Takeovers features artistic remakes that range from the reverential to the mischievous. Featuring John Baldessari’s John Baldessari Sings Sol le Witt (1972), Mike Kelley & Paul McCarthy’s Fresh Acconci (1995), Felix Gmelin’s Two Films Exchanging Soundtracks (2003), Zin Taylor’s Put Your Eye in Your Mouth (2007), Jill Godmillow’s What Farocki Taught (1998), Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard’s File Under Sacred Music (2003), Alison S.M. Kobayashi’s Dan Carter (2006), and Elisabeth Subrin’s Shulie (1997). History in the Remaking presents efforts to restage and revisit the political, social and artistic past. Together these films posit the creative and discursive implications of adaptation and repetition. Featuring T. R. Uthco and Ant Farm’s, The Eternal Frame (1976), Anri Sala’s Intervista (1998), Bruce Conner’s Report (1967), and Magnus Bärtas’s Kumiko, Johnnie Walker & the Cute (2006–2007).
