Art cinema OFFoff presents:
Acts of Painting: Films

OFFoff presents a program in which filmmakers recycle residual images into an abstract painting, depict an existential parable, paint directly on the film stock as if it were a canvas, or stage the painter as a subversive character in ecstatic tableaus.

This film program connects to the book presentation of Acts of Painting and a symposium of the same name (2-6 p.m.) at Kunsthal Gent, organized by painter and researcher Ritsart Gobyn (LUCA School of Arts Gent).

Film program curated and introduced by Isolde Vanhee
