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):

Eric Fleischauer + Matchess
Samantha Hill + Haptic
Marianna Milhorat + Brian Kirkbride

The evening will be hosted by Alison Cuddy, and former media mixer artist Latham Zearfoss will be our guest DJ!

Stay tuned for more details about the event, our guest artists, and this year’s raffle prizes!
