Squeaky Wheel, Hallwalls, & M&T Bank present

Outdoor Animation Festival Presents: Shorts By Brent Green

Days Park

Brent Green Hallwalls and Squeaky Wheel team up to co-present this summer's Outdoor Animation Festival, at Days Park during the Infringement Festival. The evening features award-winning shorts by upcoming Hallwalls artist-in-residence Brent Green, a self-taught animator who crafts elaborate sets & life-size props at his farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania. The Southern Gothic sensibility of his films, which include relentless yet lyrical narration, is reinforced by haunting scores in collaboration with indie bands such as Califone, Sin Ropas, and others. The artist will present a live performance of his first feature-length film, Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, in conjunction with his HARP artist's residency in late winter or early spring 2012.*

*HARP (Hallwalls Artists in Residence Project) is made possible with major grants from the Presenting/Multidisciplinary program of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. In addition to M&T Bank, this free outdoor screening—and all Hallwalls and Squeaky Wheel media arts programs—are supported in part with grants from the Electronic Media & Film (EMF) program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
