Curatorial and Pedagogical Projects

Overcoming the forms of the outer world

This program eschews an overarching theme for a constellation of extrapolated, imagined lines between. Spread over three consecutive evenings, the films in this program carry forth a cascade of concepts and meanders among motifs. On the whole, the films privilege perception, sensation, and encounter sometimes grounded in narrative but just as often not. While not intended as a survey, a broad range of artist moving image practices are represented, from animation to speculative documentary. How the images in these films come into existence often matters as much as what they show.

The program includes films from: Zachary Formwalt, Lucy Beech, Alice dos Reis, Peng Zuqiang, James Richards, Emilia Tapprest (NVISIBLE.STUDIO), Maya Watanabe, Carlos Casas, Emilija Škarnulytė, Fabien Giraud & Raphaël Siboni, Jenna Sutela, Lawrence Lek, Pejvak (Rouzbeh Akhbari and Felix Kalmenson), Grace Ndiritu, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Juan Arturo García, Haig Aivazian

Film program with selections by Matthew C. Wilson, artist in residence at the School of Arts in 2023, made in partnership with the Porto city council InResidence program.
