Reprisals, Reimaginings, and Revisions: A Series of Events Speculating on What-Might-Have-Been, Part One: Double Feature With Maya Deren and Bruce Checefsky

In conjunction with our current exhibition, A Wicked Problem, a survey of impossible exhibition proposals, we're looking at the ways projects from the past have been revisited, thus proving that nothing is ever really "finished," and everything is up for adaptation and expansion. Join us for a joint screening of The Witch's Cradle (1943, 12 min.), an unfinished, silent short film written and directed by Maya Deren and co-starring Marcel Duchamp, with Witch's Cradle (2014, 10 min), a reimagining of Deren's film by Bruce Checefsky.
Followed by a conversation between critic Jennifer Krasinski and Bruce Checefsky.
