QUICKENING

Experimental Animations by Mothers
Presented by Extended Practice

Saturday, October 7 at 6 PM, $7-10

This international program of experimental animations illuminates the connection between the process of animation and the experience of parenting, and celebrates motherhood as especially rich creative territory. From the first flicker of life, a mother’s sense of time, space, reality and even her own body transforms. As a flexible medium, animation can construct realities and play with the elasticity of time and space. The works in this screening utilize intergenerational collaboration, evocative materiality, layered narratives, and the physical engagement of the creator with every frame.

This screening is programmed for the Nightingale Cinema by Sara Holwerda and Angela Lopez as part of Extended Practice, an artist-led collaborative project created to support the work and needs of artists who are mothers.

Featuring work by: Lindsay Arnold, Shira Avni, Lisa Barcy,  Heather Freeman, Georgie Flood,  Ariana Gerstein, Megan Hildebrandt, Anna Hrachovec, Emily Hubley, Faith Hubley, Debbie Lee, Marjorie Lemay, Jennifer Levonian, Maria Lorenzo, Alison O’Neill, Vanessa Sweet, Lynn Tomlinson, Selina Trepp, and Karen Yasinsky

Total runtime: 75 minutes.

Nursing mothers are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.

Funding for this screening is supported in part by the DCASE Individual Artist Project grant.
