The Miami and Moscow Film Selections; Artist Sound of Film

Artprojx presents
The Miami and Moscow Film Selections
Artist Sound of Film
curated by David Gryn

The films selected are highlights of works that were originally selected and curated by David Gryn for the Film programme at Art Basel in Miami Beach over the last 4 years. The films were all played on the New World Symphony Center’s screening wall in Soundscape Park during the annual art fair. This selection was played outdoors in Moscow as part of the Museum Nights in May 2014 along with DJ Max Reinhardt.

These works all engage with music, rhythm and sound and remain resonant from their initial playing. They all have a power that is far beyond just the work, one that creates lingering memory with the viewer long after the work has been seen and finished. The selection of these was driven by their sound, engagement and that the language needed to digest these works is that of audio-visual. These works reflect on the current trends and modes of communication such as YouTube, TV, animation, gaming, social media and used to create new images, sounds and unexpected connections.

The event will also feature a Miami-Moscow playlist made for Bermondsey Project by Max Reinhardt, dj/musician/broadcaster (Late Junction BBC Radio 3). Collaborating with David Gryn and Artprojx, Max created a soundscape for the Film programme at Art Basel in Miami Beach in 2013 (at the New World Center) and played a DJ set complimenting the David Gryn curated Film programme in Moscow earlier this year. Music by artists Rashaad Newsome, Lina Lapelyte, Larry Achiampong and traces of Miami and Moscow feature in the mix.

Artprojx, founded and directed by David Gryn, screens, curates and promotes artists’ moving image and sound, working with leading contemporary art galleries, museums, art fairs and artists worldwide.
