Billy Cowie 3D Retrospective at the Baryshnikov Arts Center, January 25-February 1, 2011
The Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) in collaboration with Dance Films Association brings to New York for the first time the master illusionist Billy Cowie for his 3-D video installation, that includes MEN IN THE WALL, a four-screen stereoscopic screen dance.
3D glasses allow the viewer to enter this multi-cultural world of four men, whose shared framed lives reveal a public quartet of private differences. The piece runs on a continuous 25-minute loop.
Also to be shown will be GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE (a variation on MEN IN THE WALL for women), and TANGO DE SOLEDAD.
Award-winning Scottish video artist/composer Billy Cowie creates a delightfully amusing montage that beguiles as it inspires. Presented as a focal point of DFA’s 39th Dance on Camera Festival co-sponsored by the Film Society of Lincoln Center, Movement Research and The Big Screen Project.
