The Box

As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).

Repeats every day until Mon Jul 31 2006.

French-born, New York–based filmmaker/curator Marie Losier creates evocations of cinema past, reflecting diverse influences that range from the canonical (Carl Theodor Dreyer) to the contemporary (Guy Maddin).
Electrocute Your Stars (2004, 8 mins.) is Losier's unconventional portrait of a bathing Kuchar as he talks about his weather diaries, reads comic books, and describes the making of his classic Hold Me While I'm Naked. Selected for this year's Whitney Biennial, The Ontological Cowboy (2005, 16 mins.) celebrates playwright Richard Foreman, founder of the Ontological-Hysteric Theater in New York City's East Village, and his dedication to avant-garde theater.
