Implicit Images

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition What We Know that We Don’t Know and the 50th anniversary of Canyon Cinema, Implicit Images features four films by Ben Russell, Naomi Uman, David Gatten, and John Smith. The screening addresses the association and disconnection in semiotics, languages, and senses —what is meant to be seen and what is actually perceived.

Seating is extremely limited. RSVP here (exact info about location and time of the afternoon screening will be sent via email).
