Above the Waves

Programmed by Jason Evans (This Long Century).

The beach and its surroundings are part of art history—from the Impressionists to photographers like Rineke Dijkstra—with artists often drawn to the incredible light and color available to them in these locations. Continuing in this tradition, the experimental art-based short films and videos in this program take us across both sand and ocean, creating visuals that sometimes feel everyday and other times seem absurd.
