Wago Kreider, EIC Artist-in-Residence, 2013
Anja Dornieden and Juan David Gonzales Monroy
The Artist-in-Residence program of EIC grew out of a need to exercise Basement Films’ collection of more than 8000 16mm films (see searchable databases as http://www.basementfilms.org/#!archives/c10tw). In the past we have used the collection for unique screenings, scholarly research, found-footage filmmaking, and loop making workshops.
However, through it all, the collection of our archived films remains under utilized. It is the “job” of a resident artist to work with the collection during their three week tenure in Albuquerque (see https://vimeo.com/137990685#at=45 for a video tour of Basement Films archive).
The results of their creative research is then presented to the public as part of Experiments in Cinema. To date, we have hosted artists:
Anja Dornieden and Juan David Gonzales Monroy (http://www.ojoboca.com/)
Caryn Cline (http://caryncline.com/)
Kamila Kuc (http://kamilakuc.com/)
Linda Fenstermaker (https://nwfilm.org/directors/linda-fenstermaker/)
Julie Perini (http://julieperini.org/)
Marika Borgeson (http://marikaborgeson.com/)
The results of their residencies have been insightful, forward thinking and varied both in terms of engagement with this particular creative research and their public/festival presentations.
