MICE Collective Workshop

April 5, 12:00 PM

Moving Image Culture Etc. Collective

In Main Gallery

Moving Image Culture Etc. (MICE) Collective looks to Joyce Weiland’s 1964 work Peggy’s Blue Skylight as a starting point to recreate a leisurely afternoon of friends visiting. Thinking around ideas of collaborative time, and the politics of “taking time,” they are interested in exploring and critiquing themes of patriotism and relationship to land present within and outside of Weiland’s work. This workshop/residency will include screening selected works from the CFMDC catalog interspersed with writing exercises and selected readings. In this way, they will investigate forms of collaboration, consultation, and collective writing, resulting in a forthcoming editorial project by MICE collective.
