6th Annual CFA MEDIA MIXER FUNDRAISER
Come see the premiere of three new works created by Chicago-based artists using footage from the Chicago Film Archives collection!
The Media Mixer project started in 2012 as a way to open up CFA’s vault of archival footage to artists working in media, and to support the creation of a new video work by pairing these visual artists with artists working with sound. At the heart of the project is a desire to give CFA’s archival collections new life through the creative interpretation of contemporary artists. As a result, three new collaborative videos will be made using footage from the Chicago Film Archives collection.
This year’s artists are (videomakers listed first):
The evening will be hosted by Alison Cuddy, and former media mixer artist Latham Zearfoss will be our guest DJ!
