Melika Bass at the MCA

By Uncategorized

Melika Bass, SAIC professor at the FVNMA department is currently showing her last film at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago. Her exhibition is part of the 12×12 program at the museum. One of the main interests of the exhibition (apart from having the opportunity of seeing her film) is the way in which she has transformed a theater film into a gallery project. I’m not going to spoil the show by detailing everything, but it is interesting to pay attention on how she has created a different viewing experience (from the regular theater situation where the film is normally projected), as well as how she has extended the world that the film depicts by presenting a “collection” of objects that continue building the fiction.
