Don’t miss the rare opportunity to hear from New York-based artist Jason Simon, the founder and curator of The One Minute Film Festival, and receive a complimentary copy of the MASS MoCA catalogue created for the exhibition (while supplies last).
Over a span of 10 years, Simon and his wife, artist Moyra Davey, hosted The One Minute Film Festival each July, a boisterous gathering at their upstate New York barn that brought a wide array of artists together to share work, connect with new friends, and reaffirm old bonds. The exhibition is a compilation of the films shown at Simon’s barn from 2003 to 2012, a continuous 10-hour loop of around 600 one-minute films shot during a shifting period of American politics and popular culture.
Simon is a media artist living in New York City and is also assistant professor of Cinema at City University of New York. He creates films, videos, installations, photographs, and sound sculptures that focus on the intersection of consumption and culture.
Since the mid-1980s, he has exhibited work at many major institutions throughout the world, including The Whitney Biennial, National Museum of Osaka, and the Neue Gallerie. He is also the recipient of numerous prestigious awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and The Polaroid Foundation, among others.
The exhibition and related special events are made possible through generous sponsorship by The Forum, the newspaper of Fargo-Moorhead.
