November 16th, 2018 The Rick Prelinger Sessions: Archives, Popular Documentary, NYC

Our New York

Travel destination (Vitale), artists’ perspectives (Chouinard, Reinke), source material (Gaucher, Kantor): in this video program drawn from the Vidéographe collection, New York is seen through the prism of personal experience. Each piece is like a moment stolen from the legendarily frenetic city and time itself, capturing traces of artistic dialogue and artists’ comings and goings between New York and Canada.
