First Friday Cinema: MONO (Artist Moving Image Initiative)

Friday, June 3 // 7 PM

After you tour the First Friday exhibits, head to Spark Center for our free community film on our big screen, sponsored by CenturyLink. This month's film is an art project, MONO, or Artist Moving Image Initiative.

MONO is a project by the Polish artist Rafal Zajko. It consists in arranging rhythmical short film screenings that are focused on showing contemporary video art. The first event from the series took place in the Courtyard Theatre in London (April 2015). Fourteen artists were invited to present their works which length could not have exceeded 5 mins. Each of the participating artists was then asked to suggest two other artists they deemed suitable for the next show – MONO 2. From that time forth MONO has been branching out organically. Up until today 6 shows in London have taken place (with the additional MONO4 show in France and MONO5 in Iceland). MONO has presented the works of over 90 international artists . This viewing is sponsored by Laboratory and resident artist Elsa Philippe.
