Art Basel in Miami Beach: Get to Know Film Program – From December 7 to December 9, 2017, Art Basel will present a premier program of film and video works that focus on the universal language of dance and movement.
Selected from the show’s participating galleries by David Gryn, Director of Daata Editions and Artprojx, this year’s program will present films by artists Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Jen DeNike and Tin Ojeda, as well as a series of short films drawn from the Chicago Film Archives collection. In addition, Marian Masone, New York-based film curator, has selected ‘Boom For Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat’ (2017), directed by Sara Driver, for a special screening. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, takes place from December 7 to December 10, 2017 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
For this year’s screenings in SoundScape Park on the 7,000 square-foot outdoor projection wall of the New World Center, David Gryn has selected films that engage with the diverse and global language of dance, as well as the connection between movement and music. While in the past the Film program has featured works that touch on multiple topics, the concept for the 2017 edition will present a more focused line-up of films centered around a theme.
The Short Film program on Thursday, December 7 will feature recent works by JibadeKhalil Huffman (b. 1981) and Jen DeNike (b. 1971), who both work across various media. Huffman’s works bring together spoken and written language, photography, vintage television and computer animation to pay homage to African-American popular culture. In her films, DeNike stages vignettes of urban and suburban life as lyrical, slow-motion masquerades of joy, pain, and transcendence by blending video, photography, sculpture and performance.
