National Gallery of Art | East Wing | Washington, D.C.

Fred Worden, Asst. Professor in Cinema Arts, is invited to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., to screen his experimental films. On Sunday, December 11th at 4:30 he will introduce and screen 6 of his experimental films, and he will provide a Q & A time afterwards. On Sunday, December 17th at 4:30, Fred will be showing his latest work in progress, ALL OR NOTHING and another film, made in 1986, HOW THE HELL I RIPPED JACK GOLDSTEIN'S PAINTING IN THE ELEVATOR; he will also be giving a lecture, AFTER HOURS IN THE CEREBRAL KITCHEN.

Both programs will be held in the East Building Consourse, Auditorium.

Since the 1970s, Fred Worden has been making experimental films primarily to examine "how a stream of still pictures passing through a projector at a speed meant to overwhelm the eyes might be harnessed to purposes other than representation or naturalism." With wholehearted revelry in cinematic illusion and a commitment to kinetic abstractions, he produces short films and digital videos that draw attention to subjective perceptual play through the manipulation of visual phenomena. Assistant professor of art at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Worden has produced work exhibited at festivals and venues in Paris, Hong Kong, Rotterdam, London, New York, and Toronto.
