One significant part of my pratice is dedicated to the development of my program Cinema 16. I founded the series in 2008 after living in New York City for a few years because I was interested in resurrecting the public cinematic experience. For each commission I program obscure vintage films and pair them with contemporary musician, who are invited to compose an original score.
Named after the New York-based avant-garde film society, which was founded in 1947, by Amos and Marcia Vogel, the original Cinema 16 was inspired by a Maya Deren film exhibition in Greenwich Village. Recently, the politics of viewing has become solitary and private, reducing cinema to the tiny screens on our laptops and phones.
My curatorial project is nomadic and has traveled to museums and galleries, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA/PS1, The Kitchen, and The Museum of Moving Image.
