in tandem – City Myth Bygone

Press Street’s Monthly in tandem Series

New this year, we’ve begun a screening series in which we ask an artist, filmmaker or cinephile to pair a film screening or multimedia event with the current exhibition at Antenna. This month, Press Street’s Gretchen Faust has conjured a collection of footage from digital archives to complement MRSA’s meandering through mythos.

“We invite you to visually wander through scenes of New Orleans from times past. Conjuring relics from yesteryear – snapshots of previous time create slices of nonsense. Looking through archives evokes the very nature of myth – as both are unfathomable. Before the journey into our city, we will be put under the spell by a handful of Georges Méliès shorts.”

Film footage will be accompanied by a live score.

Potluck will also be happening! We’d love if you’d bring something to share.
