Film Love: Vito Acconci: Open To You

By Mike Everleth ⋅ January 26, 2010

Jan. 29
8:00 p.m.
290 MLK Jr. Drive SE, Suite 8
Atlanta, GA 30312

Hosted by: Film Love

To celebrate the 70th birthday of Vito Acconci, Atlanta’s Film Love screening series will present four videos featuring the work of the celebrated poet and performance artist.

In the late ’60s, Acconci decided to use the entire city of New York as his canvas in which to perform his art. Over the next five years, he produced dozens of performances, which were recorded on video. These performances explore the nature of relationships and range from the sharply comic to the genuinely unsettling.

Film Love curator Andy Ditzler will provide an introduction to the context and content of Acconci’s work.
