Between 1973 and 1976 Coleen Fitzgibbon made some of the most rigorous
abstract films to date. This program revisits some of these early 16mm films
from an artist who is perhaps best known as one of the co-founders of the
alternative arts collective Colab.

Films to be screened: Found Film Flashes (1973), FM/TRCS (1974), Internal
Systems (1975), Restoring appearances to order in 12 minutes (1975),
Document (1975-76).

Coleen Fitzgibbon was active as an experimental film artist under the
pseudonym "Colen Fitzgibbon" between the years 1973-1980. A student of Owen
Land (aka "George Landow"), Stan Brakhage, and Michael Snow, Fitzgibbon
screened her work at numerous international film festivals and museums,
including EXPRMNTL 5 at Knokke-Heist in Belgium, Institute of Contemporary
Art in London, Anthology Film Archives, Collective For Living Cinema, and
Millennium Film Workshop in New York.

Coleen Fitzgibbon will be on hand to discuss her work.
Discussion moderated by Daryl Chin.

About Light Industry

Light Industry is a new venue for film and electronic art in Brooklyn, New
York. Developed and overseen by Thomas Beard and Ed Halter, the project has
begun as series of weekly events at Industry City in Sunset Park, each
organized by a different artist, critic, or curator. Conceptually, Light
Industry draws equal inspiration from the long history of alternative art
spaces in New York as well its storied tradition of cinematheques and other
intrepid film exhibitors. Through a regular program of screenings,
performances, and lectures, its goal is to explore new models for the
presentation of time-based media and foster a complex dialogue amongst a
wide range of artists and audiences within the city.
