Opening Reception and Artist's Talks

Jillian Mcdonald and Frank McCauley - Opening Reception and Artist's Talks

Jillian McDonald examines the ways film genres and archetypes affect their audiences and the fan sub-cultures that fuel the film industry.

Frank McCauley’s video works utilize imitation, mimesis, and modification as a strategy of appropriation. Many of his projects operate on the level of costume, disingenuous charade, and nostalgia. Artist's talks begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Hallwalls Cinema.
