Museum of the Moving Image
An Evening with Phil Solomon
Wednesday, October 3, 7:00 p.m.
(5:30-7:00 p.m. viewing for American Falls)
Phil Solomon, who has been making films since 1979, is known for his
"image alchemy," manipulating existing and original footage to create
evocative, dreamlike works that reveal subterranean depths in the
imagery. While Solomon frequently works in a miniaturist scale with
such formats as 16mm film and video, his triptych film American
Falls, presented at the Museum as an installation in the third-floor
Changing Exhibitions Gallery, is appropriately monumental in form and
scope, taking as its subject nothing less than the promise and the
failure of the American Dream through the twentieth century. This is
a special opportunity to see American Falls and to also see Solomon
introduce a selection of his work in the Main Theater. Included in
the theater program is a trilogy of works composed entirely of
footage from the video game Grand Theft Auto.
