It is a continuation of Flux Factory’s interest in urban landscapes and takes inspiration from the Panorama, Robert Moses’ scale model of New York City in the Queens Museum of Art.  For this exhibition, over 100 artists from all five boroughs and around the world re-imagine the public and private spaces of New York.

Le Mal du Pays
Cecile Paris, video, 4 min 50, 2006

Hold Me While I’m Naked
George Kuchar, 16mm, color, sound, 15 min, 1966
“A very direct and subtle, very sad and funny look at nothing more or less than sexual frustration and aloneness. In its economy and cogency of imaging, Hold Me surpasses any of Kuchar’s previous work. The odd blend of Hollywood glamour and drama with all-too-real life creates and inspires a counterpoint of unattainable desire against unbearable actuality.” — Ken Kelman

In The Street
Helen Levitt, Janice Loeb, and James Agee, silent, 15min, 1945
In the Street, a short, lyrical documentary film. The Streets of the poor quarters of great cities are, above all, a theater and a battleground.

Girl with 3 Socks
Shannon Plumb, super 8, 3 min
Brooklyn Bridge, a girl and 3 socks…

On The Bowery
Lionel Rogosin, 20 mins, 1957
A mix of documentary and scripted footage on the Bowery, New York City’s skid row. Against a backdrop of men (and a few women) drinking in bars, talking and arguing, and sleeping on sidewalks, we have the story of Ray.

The Existentialist
Leon Prochnik, 10 min, 1960
Leon Prochnik’s study of non-conformity has a man walking through New York while the traffic and the city move about him in reverse!
