BARRICK FILMS presents JESSIE STEAD

During the month of May the Barrick Film Series presents New York based Filmmaker Jessie Stead. Stead’s single channel motion picture How To Quit Smoking At The Moon Hotel (2013).

The movie will be shown inside of Barrick Museum auditorium during the following days and times:

  • Tue. and Thur., 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
  • Sat., Noon - 5 p.m.

 

Starring Director Jessie Stead as "a moonlighter" this neo-nocturne details a few small transactions staged in a coin operated elevator at a downloaded lunar hotel. 

Jessie Stead produces and distributes work in overlapping and re-mixable patterns of cinema, installation, music and other forms of cross-disciplined art. Posing as a film director in an on-going real life performance piece, Stead's single channel motion-pictures have been featured internationally. Recent presentations include the Greater New York Cinema exhibition at MoMA PS1, Anthology Film Archives, the London Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. Exhibitions and events orchestrated by Stead and key collaborators including her art-band HARIBO have recently been presented at mixed venues including Peforma 11, Akershus Kunstsenter, Soloway Gallery, nightclubs and many other places.
