Visiting Film & Video Artists & Speaker Series Binghamton University – Roger Beebe
April 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Roger Beebe’s work since 2006 consists primarily of multiple projector performances that explore the world of found images and the “found” landscapes of late capitalism. He has screened his films around the globe at such unlikely venues as the CBS Jumbotron in Times Square and McMurdo Station in Antarctica as well as more likely ones including Sundance and the Museum of Modern Art with solo shows at Anthology Film Archives, The Laboratorio Arte Alameda in Mexico City, and Los Angeles Filmforum among many other venues. Beebe is also a film programmer: he ran Flicker, a festival of small-gauge film in Chapel Hill, NC, from 1997-2000 and was the founder and Artistic Director of FLEX, the Florida Experimental Film/Video Festival from 2004-2014. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Art at the Ohio State University.
The event program includes:
Last Light of a Dying Star (2008/rev. 2011)
Beginnings (2010/rev. 2011)
This Series is co-sponsored by the Cinema Department and Harpur College Dean’s Speakers Series.
