We are thrilled to host the second screening evening of this collaborative cinematic project, conceived and curated by two nonprofit organizations. 

Lower East Side On The Screen – Evolving Urban Identity intends to showcase independent, underground films spanning the decades from the 1970’s to the 1990’s that touch upon the subject of the urban fabric of the Lower East Side and the Downtown counter-culture scene.

 The film screenings will be introduced by Anne Hannavan (Film-makers’ Coop’s President, Board of Directors) and Katherine Bauer (Web Committee Correspondence Officer).

Bios:

Coleen Fitzgibbon is an active experimental film artist, she currently resides in New York City and Montana. A graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Whitney Independent Study Program, she studied with the likes of Owen Land, Stan Brakhage, Yvonne Rainer, Carolee Schneemann and Vito Acconci; she has worked on film and sound projects for Dennis Oppenheim, Gordon Matta-Clark and Les Levine. Fitzgibbon formed the collaborative X&Y with Robin Winters in 1976 and is best known for co-founding the New York based Collaborative Projects, Inc. (Colab) in 1977 through 1981, along with forty plus artists.  Fitzgibbon has screened her work at numerous international film festivals, museums and galleries, including The Toronto International Film Festival; Museum of Modern Art, NYC; Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago; Palais des Beaux Arts, Brussels; Institute of Contemporary Art, London; Anthology Film Archives, NYC; De Appel, Amsterdam; Exit Art, NYC; Subliminal Projects Gallery, LA. 

NYC-based filmmaker Stephanie Gray will present a selection of super 8 films made between the mid-00s and now, of those vanishing or hidden, over-familiar but not always ‘seen’ parts of the Lower East Side/East Village. Some films include last days of Gertel’s Bakery and Five Roses Pizza, as well as now disappeared (and still hanging on) signs on 2nd Ave and pockets of character on walls, storefronts and elsewhere that continually seem to vanish by the ‘condo-fication’ of the city.
