CATE 10-Year Anniversary Season Announced

Nicolas Provost, Gravity

Conversations at the Edge (CATE) is a weekly series of screenings, artist talks, and performances by some of the most compelling media artists of yesterday and today, organized by the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Department of Film, Video, New Media and Animation, in collaboration with the Gene Siskel Film Center and Video Data Bank. We are happy to participate in CATE's 10-year anniversary season by bringing two amazing VDB artists to Chicago this fall. 

Laura Parnes will present her acclaimed feature, Blood and Guts in High School, along with episodes from her new web series, County Down, on Thursday, September 29.

We will welcome Belgian media artist Nicolas Provost on Thursday, November 10.  Provost will screen a handful of his short videoworks, such as Gravity, Long Live the New Flesh, Stardust and Storyteller.

CATE's current season will also include appearances and work by artists Chris Sullivan (9/15), Matthew Buckingham (9/22), Bill Brown and Lee Anne Schmitt (10/6), Steina Vasulka (10/13), Rebecca Meyers (10/20), Luke Fowler (10/27), and Amar Kanwar (11/17).

All programs take place Thursdays at 6pm at the Gene Siskel Film Center (164 N. State / Chicago, IL / 312-846-2600).
