Meet The Artist: The Expanded Cinema Practice of Tara Merenda Nelson

Selected date

Thursday July 29

Selected time

6:00 PM  –  7:00 PM

The term ‘expanded cinema’ describes the integration of multiple forms of media to create a non-traditional cinema environment. Drawing from this rich legacy, Tara Merenda Nelson’s (b. 1975) practice as an artist incorporates analog and digital film projection, still and moving-image sculptures, live soundtracks, and interactive film performances on multiple projectors. MAG is presenting the exhibition FourMats, which includes two multimedia installations by Tara, on view from May 28 through August 8. The exhibition will be complemented by an online curated program of films by Tara in dialogue with filmmakers that influenced her such as Rose Lowder and Helga Fanderl.

This program will take place on Zoom. Live captioning will be available.
