Art Basel – Trance

Miami Beach Cinematheque. Dec 6th, 2008. 8:30 p.m.  Miami Beach Cinematheque. Miami FilmTrance is a multimedia site-specific installation, which explores a neighborhood from the inside out. It premiers at Art Basel film festival Dec 6th, 2008 at 8:30 p.m. Using documentary video and found sound, Trance blurs the boundaries between insider and outsider, past and present, fitting in or being exiled. By partnering with local composers, Pearl Gluck creates a documentary visualscape made up of found images and sounds collected in the specific neighborhoods over the course of one week.

Two of the Trance installations will be featured this evening: Trance: plac Z.ydowski, Krakow which visits what's left on the 200 year old once Jewish market square in Kazimierz, and Trance: Eldridge Street, New York, which visits the Lower East Side's interconnected and still separate Asian and Jewish communities. In the spirit of ambiguity and confusion, there will also be another featured soundscape, a "soundwalk" through Hasidic Williamsburg hosted by Pearl Gluck, with separate walks for men and women. All MBC Art Basel events are complimentary admission.
