Untitled (Just Kidding)

Jesse Malmed presents a suite of videos and performances, including new works made specifically for this evening. Malmed’s moving image works channel and channel surf the intersects of conceptual comedy, dizzying illogics, the poetic plu-future and sustainable sourcing, animating the cinema space with live gestures. Tonight’s sights include: a sitcommune, an actorless play, the permeability of the screen and new letters.
