BRENT EFFING COUGHENOUR! 9/27, 8pm, 640 SE Stark

Published September 23rd, 2012 by Grand Detour
If you went to any EFFPortland, you might have noticed that Mr. Brent Coughenour was ALL UP IN IT. His installation In Search of Lost Time was at Place Gallery, and his excellent short film Work in Progress was in our “best of” program. Bottom line: THIS DUDE RULES. He may in fact be the best thing to come out of Detroit. And NOW he’s bringing a tour of recent work back to Portland, and you’re not going to want to miss it. JOIN US THIS THURSDAY, September 27, at 8pm, for a show that will rock your socks.
Brent Coughenour is a media artist originally from the Motor City, currently based in the Golden State. He has presented his work at a variety of festivals and venues throughout the U.S. and internationally, including the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Media City Film and Video Festival, Antimatter Film Festival, Experimental Film and Video Festival in Seoul, Ann Arbor Film Festival and the fledgling Experimental Film Festival Portland. His most recent piece, the three-part found-footage video essay Mysterium Cosmographicum, is distributed by Video Data Bank.

Boys will be Boys: Chris Freeman and Joe Noreen Thursday, September 20, 8pm

Published September 16th, 2012 by Grand Detour

We fell in love with Chris Freeman when he submitted Chris Freeman Presents: A scene from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Episode 3×09, “The Vengeance Factor”  to EFFPortland, and the love just keeps on flowin! Join us as we celebrate his work this Thursday, September 20, at 8pm, in our new space at 640 SE Stark!

Chris Freeman, “Me Time”

Chris Freeman’s video work deals with ideas of masculinity and normalcy as a white, straight, American male.  Often taking the form of self-portraits, Freeman’s constructed situations seek to portray the contradictions in a social group that is so normal it is not defined as a group.  The result is often humorous and ironic, but multi-layered, as he uses his own far-from-perfect male body to show unspoken pressures of strength, vigilance, and competitiveness.  

We’re stoked that he’s going to screen with us this Thursday. We’re stoked that he’s going to be premiering “Dreams of War, Dreams of Lies, Dreams of Dragon’s Fire,” a metal mash-up music video investigating rock star heroes, a mythology of power, unrealized dreams, and how lame normal life is.

We’re also stoked that he’s bringin a friend! Joe Noreen is a photographer, musician, writer, video artist, sometimes film actor, and human, whose work aims to articulate and vindicate the magnificent albatross of incisive sensitivity and the beautiful nightmare that is perceptive consciousness.

Here’s to a night of fantastic media and rad bromance! Suggested donation $3-6 (hey, we pay rent at that space, y’all).
