'Urban Exquis,' a cinematic installation at First Park tonight

[Bobby Williams]

Tonight from 8-9 in First Park, 33 E. First St. near Second Avenue ... via Facebook...

Urban Exquis is inspired both by the cadavre exquis method of poetry, in which a collection of writers blindly contribute isolated words that together compose a poem, and by Gordon Matta-Clark’s 1976 film City Slivers, in which the artist depicts New York City through a collection of masked views that fill only a portion of the film frame. Urban Exquis consists of twenty-four short videos that depict various urban environments.

And a scene from last night's viewing...
