Notes from Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then
August 1 – August 1, 2014
1708 Gallery is pleased to present Notes from Gravity Was Everywhere Back Then, a performance by Brent Green. Join us for the live performance on Friday, August 1, from 6 to 9 p.m. Doors will open at 5 p.m. There will be light refreshments and a cash bar.
Brent Green is Nervous Films, an independent filmmaker and artist from Cressona, PA. As a self-taught animator, Green shares stories and tales that combine fact and myth. The central characters of Green's works are often extremely passionate about an unusual desire or aim. They are the kind of people who inhabit the dimly lit house at the end of the street and about whom children grow up creating tales. Through Green's writing, stylized stop-motion techniques, and raspy narration, however, a sense of endearment and empathy for their struggles is evoked.
Green's films exist beyond the screen as well. He often organizes live performances with his films, assembling a band and providing a live narration of the script. His live performances have taken place at numerous venues including MoMA, The Kitchen, The Walker Arts Center, and The Hammer Museum.
