Bortolami is pleased to announce a presentation of works from Michel François’ Instant Gratification series, ceramic wall sculptures by Liz Larner, drawings by Tony Lewis, and sculptures by Virginia Overton. In a separate exhibition in the second gallery room, Morgan Fisher’s film Screening Room will be screened hourly.
Screening Room (1968/2016) by Morgan Fisher is a hand-held tracking shot that travels along 10th Avenue and then enters the gallery, culminating in the temporary screening room where the viewer sits watching the film. This is the fifteenth state, to use Fisher’s word, of the film. Despite appearances, they are all the same film because they all have the same relation to their screening rooms. The film is not remade, but rather made again. The film can only be seen projected as a film in a screening room, refusing the universal availability of the moving image that has become the norm. The film will screen once an hour from 10 am to 6 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. Another film by Morgan Fisher will be in the exhibition Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema And Art, 1905–2016, opening October 28 at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
