“Walk-By Movies” Exhibition

CUNY Graduate Center

This event has ended.

The James Gallery's "Walk-By Movies," visible and audible only from the street, presents an urban, pedestrian version of the drive-in theater. On the heavily trafficked corner of Fifth Avenue and 35th Street, a curated series of films and video programs will be projected onto the gallery wall nightly starting at 5:00 p.m. Building on the audience of street viewers attracted to the exhibition “People “Weekly,”” the new series further explores the windowed, street-level location of the gallery. Conceptually, "Walk-By Movies" addresses a longstanding dilemma faced by artists and curators: the fact that museum-goers cannot be expected to sit through a film or video in its entirety. By selecting works that lend themselves to delimited viewing, while embracing the distinctly urban habits of window shopping and strolling, “Walk-By Movies” provides both a novel method of exhibiting contemporary film and video, and a unique public art experience.
