HAUNTED SCREENS at UB Art Gallery, 3/29/07-5/19/07

Buffalo, N.Y. -- The UB Art Gallery is pleased to present Haunted Screens, a group exhibition featuring national and international artists that are working to deconstruct cinematic technologies. Participating artists include Zoe Beloff, Michael Bosworth, Diane Landry, Ed Pien, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Simon Penny, Siebren Versteeg, and Kara Walker.

In the spirit of proto-cinematic devices like magic lanterns and zoetropes, Haunted Screens features artwork that employs a variety of techniques—from the hand-drawn to pixel disintegration—to present a delirium of actual and implied movement. The phantasmagorias, silhouettes, and projections in this exhibition borrow from mysticism and folklore, the legacy of the African slave trade, and urban specters to conjure historical and magical apparitions that inhabit the contemporary mind.
