An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Thursday, repeating until June 18, 2020 12:00 am

May 29 is an exclusive online presentation of Circumstantial Pleasures, the new film from collage animator & past Wex Artist Residency Award recipient Lewis Klahr.

The film was only screened once publicly before this.

The Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University will present the exclusive online premiere of Circumstantial Pleasures, a new feature-length work by Los Angeles-based, internationally recognized collage animator Lewis Klahr. The work will stream for free via wexarts.org Friday, May 29–Thursday, June 18.

On Friday, June 5 at 8 PM EDT/5 PM PDT, the Wex will also present a livestream of Klahr in conversation with Associate Film/Video Curator Chris Stults and Courtney Stephens, a filmmaker, programmer, past Wexner Center Film/Video Studio residency artist, and early champion of Klahr’s latest work.

Composed of six shorts ranging from three to 22 minutes and featuring music by David Rosenboom, Tom Recchion, and Scott Walker, Circumstantial Pleasures (2012–19) represents a notable departure for the artist in style and atmosphere. Klahr usually looks to vintage sources to build his found-image films but here employs more modern imagery, generating a sense of unease that’s perfectly attuned to today’s uniquely destabilized social environment.
