Steve Reinke, Anthology of American Folk Song & Selected Works
Sun 5 Feb 2017 / 7.40–9.40pm
Chicago-based Reinke is an artist best known for his single-channel video work, alongside a prolific output of writing which often informs his filmmaking practice. The films selected are characteristic of Reinke’s wry style of delivery – diaristic and personal, interrupted by wit, libidinal urges and the inane everyday.
The programme also features the Scottish premiere of Reinke’s new work, A Boy Needs a Friend (2015), following on from screenings at The Berlinale and New York Film Festival, as well as an introductory text written by Glasgow-based artist, Gordon Douglas, available to read here.
This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, curated by Seán Elder and presented by LUX Scotland.
