The galleries open to the public on Saturday, April 4th. The works will be on view indefinitely. My film is titled Twelve Bagatelles and is dedicated to Janis Crystal Lipzin.

Stupid Pills presents Gulp, an evening of performance art. Seven performers will each be given 5 to 7 minutes to present their individual piece back-to-back. Each performance explores issues of sonic, verbal and visual language across a spectrum ranging from small and simple gestures to loud theatrical gestures.
Although each artist’s approach varies (including action-based performance, creative writing, experimental dance, experimental film, and sound art), they will all use performance as a tool for social engagement and spatial intervention.

Small New Films
Since 2002, the Echo Park Film Center (EPFC) has been an influential proponent of small-gauge film, particularly Super 8mm and 8mm. This survey of handmade films affirms the independent spirit of the EPFC community in an aesthetically eclectic range of works from personal diary films to cross-disciplinary collaborations, from documentary portraiture to hand-processed abstraction. Drawing on young experimenters from the center’s education and residency programs as well as artists commissioned to make brand-new films for EPFC’s 12-year anniversary, the program includes films by Rick Bahto, Ursula Brookbank, Kate Brown, Paul Clipson, Hayley Elliott, Marilyn Hernandez, John Palmer, Ellie Parker, Chloe Reyes, Martine Syms, Penelope Uribe-Abee, and Pablo Valencia, all projected from Super 8 or 8mm camera originals.
In person: by Rick Bahto, Ursula Brookbank, Kate Brown, Paul Clipson, Hayley Elliott, Marilyn Hernandez, John Palmer, Ellie Parker, Chloe Reyes, Martine Syms, Penelope Uribe-Abee, and Pablo Valencia
