Hauntology

Hallowen L@TE Event




October 29, 2010; 2 Minutes; Video

At BAM/PFA's October 29th L@TE event, we started off the Halloween weekend with an evening of hauntological sounds, spirited discussions, and phantasmagorical projections. The spectral sounds of Portland-based Indignant Senility, and Bay-area based artists Barn Owl, Jim Haynes, and Marielle Jakobsons provide a haunting sonic backdrop for multiple film, slide, and video projections, many from the PFA Collection, plus a ghostly procession by the Theater for Charity, and other tricks and treats.

This event was programmed in conjunction with the exhibition Hauntology. The L@TE event is preceded at 6 p.m. by an interdisciplinary introduction to the exhibition, also in Gallery B. Poet and writer David Brazil, Stanford professor of English Terry Castle, and artist and web designer Josh On explore the implications of hauntology—how the past is haunted by both the present and the future—for visual art and beyond.
