Join us for books and beer, film and fun on Thursday, May 16 (6-9pm), as we celebrate the opening night of Publication Studio’s micro-residency in Eyebeam’s bookstore, and video_dumbo’s film festival!
video_dumbo is an experimental film festival- now in its eighth year- presenting a full schedule of screenings and moving image installations in Eyebeam’s main space, taking place May 16-25. This year includes the work of 100+ international artists, several US premieres, and an ongoing exhibition entitled “Re-Return to Sender,” which explores the imagined consciousness of digital moving image displays and projection apparatus. Concurrently, Finnish moving-image artist Lauri Astala will present a new interactive installation “On Disappearance,” which will be on view at Eyebeam until June 8.
Publication Studio is a social publishing endeavor based in Portland, OR. From May 16-23, they will be holding a micro-residency in Eyebeam’s storefront bookstore, developing new projects with Eyebeam artists, hosting events, and presenting an exhibition entitled “REBIND,” which re-imagines 42 iconic book covers. On May 30, Publication Studio and Eyebeam present “Maker and Destroyer of Books”- a panel on the resilience and transformation of the book as technology and object, including discussions with Brad Troemel, Brian Droitcour, Laurel Ptak, Roddy Schrock, and Zoe Salditch.
