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.
