Chicago Reader on Broken Music

“New York film curator Astria Suparak assembled this wonderful program of videos on experimental music in which a variety of artists put familiar instruments and objects to unusual uses, showing that the seen world is alive with sonic possibilities.”

Dark Into Dark

“Video is used by Vito Acconci, Charlemagne Palestine, and Tony Oursler as a medium for investigating and exhibiting obsession, trauma, and need for control.” – Village Voice

Other Screenings at Pratt

The Pratt Film Series was a weekly program dedicated to showing work not easily accessible to the public and to forging ties across disciplines including performance, music, painting, sculpture, animation, theater, and architecture. Over the course of three years, Suparak presented work from 18 countries, spanning nearly the history of cinema, as well as hosted guest filmmakers and performers, traveling film and music festivals, and collaborations with other New York City venues.
