COOP presents Of Diabase in Time: A Selection of Twenty-one Experimental Films Made by Artists Currently Living in North Carolina

Wed. May 2, 2018

Track One, 1211 4th Ave S
Film Program: 6-8pm

Since 2010, COOP has been committed to expanding Nashville’s dialogue with contemporary art by presenting challenging, new, or underrepresented artworks to the community and initiating conversations between Nashville and different art scenes across the country.  Last year, Coop expanded its programming by launching Coop Microcinema, creating a venue for experimental time-based art in Nashville. Our spring 2018 screening features work from artists living in North Carolina.

North Carolina’s festivals, art galleries, micro-cinemas, and diverse film programs have made it one of the epicenters of contemporary art-based cinema in the United States. Curated by Coop Members and Nashville Filmmakers Jonathan Rattner, John Warren, and Morgan Higby-Flowers and programmed by the filmmaker Anna Kipervaser, who teaches in the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image at Duke University, Of Diabase in Time consists of animation, digital video, and 16mm films from a  selection of twenty-one film artists currently living in North Carolina.
