A brazen multidisciplinary artist who studied film history and theory, C. Spencer Yeh presents a program of two new moving image works combining diaristic and documentary footage as part of his as part of his ISSUE Project Room residency in 2015. The recently completed TRAVELOGUE: CAIRO EGYPT crosses long takes and static shots captured via smartphone in a four-part composition exploring surveillance, chance composition, tourism, and politics. 2002 is a “concert film” that documents approximately forty bands and artists Yeh videotaped during the year 2002, including Deerhoof, Sightings, Sudden Infant, Cock ESP, Double Leopards, Caroliner Rainbow, Comets on Fire, Animal Collective, and others. These are two very different works that showcase Yehâ€™s unique perspective as an artist, organizer, and audience member. The screening is followed by a Q&A with the artist.
