On Thursday, June 6th, 2024 at Constellation, Chicago Film Archives will host the premiere of three new works created for the “Media Mixer: Homemade” project by pairs of Chicago artists.
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 new video works by pairing visual and sound artists. At the heart of the Media Mixer is a desire to give CFA’s archival collections new life through the creative interpretation of Chicago artists.
This year, each artist pair is working with the home movies of an individual family, and will meet with members of those families to gain a sense of who each family is beyond what is seen and depicted in their home movies.
The 2024 Media Mixer artists are:
working with the Lieb-Hootnick Family Collection
working with the Glick-Berolzheimer Collection
working with the Frank Miyamoto Collection
This year’s event will be hosted by Romi Crawford.
The 2024 Media Mixer curator is Emily Eddy.
