Light Industry Finds New Home

By Mike Everleth ⋅ June 2, 2011

After being homeless for the past few months, Light Industry — the experimental media screening series organized by Ed Halter and Thomas Beard — has finally found a new home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, NYC.

Light Industry screenings will now be held at 155 Freeman St., which is a 1,500 sq. ft. space that they will share with Triple Canopy, an artists publication, and The Public School, an innovative adult learning series.

All three organizations were housed last year in a storefront in downtown Brooklyn, but have now signed a five-year lease for their new location in the upper-portion of Greenpoint. (Which, coincidentally, was the neighborhood home of the Underground Film Journal about 10 years ago. If I still lived there, I’d be able to walk to screenings.)

To help fund their new screening series, artist talks, classes and lectures, Light Industry and its partners are raising funds on Kickstarter. Investment incentives include copies of Triple Canopy’s print edition, web-based art by Cory Arcangel, print art by R. H. Quaytman and Paul Chan; plus, free admittance to all events held at 155 Freeman St.
