Inside Out Co-presentation: LIVE FILM! JACK SMITH!

 

 

For five
days last fall, the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art staged the largest
Jack Smith gathering in history, bringing scholars, performers and filmmakers
to Berlin to participate. New works were commissioned and past collaborators
returned to celebrate Arsenal’s acquisition of some of Smith’s recently
restored prints.

Jack Smith,
performer, photographer and filmmaker is best known for his film Flaming
Creatures, a stunning vision of exoticized gender and sexual transgression. His
lasting influence in the art world is remarkable and Inside Out is proud to
bring a piece of this very important project to Toronto. 

 

Co-presented
by LIFT, Arsenal, The Images Festival and Goethe-Institut Toronto. 

 

Featuring
films, performances or talks by Jack Smith, Pauline Boudry (Berlin), Renate
Lorenz (Berlin), Oliver Husain (Toronto), Deirdre Logue (Toronto) and Stefanie
Schulte Strathaus (Berlin). 

 

This
multidisciplinary event will be followed by a panel discussion.
