Edgar Arceneaux - Beyond Entertainment

  • Centre Pompidou Place Georges-Pompidou 75004 Paris, France France (map)
Free entry

Artists living in Los Angeles, Edgar Arceneaux and his collaborator Kurt Forman, offer to create short films on the model 
of Hulk Alter You! (2012), produced by Beyond Entertainment, a mashup of movie clips questioning popular entertainment and
 its political and social nuances. Thanks to several workstations dedicated to the various stages of the realization,
 everyone is involved in the work of video creation, from scenario to staging. From excerpts of famous feature films mixed
 with videos shot by workshop participants, build new scenarios, plagiarizing modes of advertising and questioning social 
standards, identity and community issues to create a unique dialogue between the participants and the two artists, between 
France and the United States. One foot at Studio 13/16 and you are already in the USA.

An artist talk will be held on March 8, 2018 at 9:00Am 

On April 8, the films made during this workshop will be screened in Cinema 1 (2:30 pm). In partnership with France 
Los Angeles Exchange (FLAX) and Mona Bismarck American Center (Paris).
