Fri, Oct 9, 2015

Columbus, OH—October 9, 2015— The Wexner Center is proud to announce Picture Lock: 25 Years of Film/Video Residencies, a four-day celebration of the rich legacy of film and video created at the center through its one-of-a-kind Film/Video Studio Program. The series runs October 29 through November 1 and features an array of international artists who have been supported by the program, rare screenings from the Film/Video Studio archive, and lively discussions among filmmakers and artists.

Film/Video Studio Program Curator Jennifer Lange says, “For 25 years, the program has aided the work of hundreds of film and video artists and been a vital and essential part of the Wexner Center’s commitment to serving as a creative laboratory for artists. With Picture Lock, we’re taking a moment to look back at its history, as well as its future to share the breadth, depth, and ambition of the program.”

The artist-centric nature of the studio program is reflected in the celebration’s lineup, with a distinct focus on audiences hearing from the filmmakers themselves about their work and their creative process, telling the story of the program from those who have been impacted by it most directly. Filmmakers, artists, editors and former curators including Guy Maddin, Jason Simon, Gregg Bordowitz, Deborah Stratman, Kevin Jerome Everson, Lucy Raven, Jennifer Reeder, Mike Olenick, Steven Bognar, Paul Hill, and Sam Green will return to present screenings of works selected from the Wexner Center archive and to discuss recurring themes and topics. In addition to the archive programs, a few artists will visit to screen newly completed films that have received support from the program, including Maddin’s The Forbidden Room, Jennifer Reeder’s Blood Below the Skin, and Jacqueline Goss and Jenny Perlin’s The Measures.

Visitor information: Unless otherwise noted, tickets for individual screenings and events are $8 for the general public and $6 for Wexner Center members, students, and senior citizens. Festival passes, which grant access to all screenings and presentations, are available for $30 for the general public and $25 for Wexner Center members, students, and senior citizens.
