glitching out

Evan Meaney

Grand Detour presents Evan Meaney: the ceibas cycle. The installation is currently on view at PLACE Gallery in "the Settlement" in Pioneer Place (through April 30). This weekend, Meaney is giving a talk about his work, followed by a screening of some of his past video works and inspiration from "his self-appointed 'spirit animal,' Hollis Frampton....the ceibas cycle is a ten-part, multimedia exploration of ghosts, glitches and the aesthetics of entropy...For our cyber-organized culture, glitches embody the imperfections that allow for us to be complete. A broken thing presents itself as a dialogue and not simply as a vessel. In this spirit, the ceibas cycle serves as a home for these glitchy reminders, given in all of their complex imperfection, so as to better celebrate our own."

Artist talk • 4pm • April 23
Screening • 6pm • April 23
Grand Detour @ PLACE • Pioneer Place Mall 3rd floor
