|New York Is Killing Me
featuring Chris Cunningham
Sunday, September 26, 2010
Join us for the world premiere of Chris Cunningham's audiovisual remix of Gil Scott-Heron's "New York Is Killing Me," which will be projected across three screens. This unique event will be preceded by a conversation about the making of the video with Cunningham and Barbara London, Associate Curator of Media and Performance Art. Doors and bar open at 8:30; conversation starts promptly at 9:30.
Cult filmmaker, musician, photographer, and producer Chris Cunningham is known for his highly acclaimed music videos for artists including Aphex Twin, Björk, Portishead, and many others. Since 2003 his focus has moved to music: he produced two tracks on The Horrors' Mercury Prize–nominated Primary Colours; won a Cannes Golden Lion for his reworking of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" in his 2008 Gucci Flora commercial; and created audiovisual remixes for Gil Scott-Heron and Grace Jones. Recently, he has headlined festivals around the world with his new live show, and is presently working on his first audiovisual album.
