Part of the 2014 Nitehawk Shorts Festival, Nitehawk’s ART SEEN presented a special one-night screening of works by artist Aldo Tambellini. The event included a live original performance by Alyse Lamb (Eula and Parlor Walls) to Tambellin's new film "No Name Film 1".
"Black is the beginning. It is birth, the oneness of all, the expansion of consciousness in all directions" – Aldo Tambellini
Iconoclastic and experimental artist Aldo Tambellini was among the first artists in the early 1960s to explore new technologies as an art medium. Tambellini combined slide projections, film, performance, and music into sensorial experiences that he aptly called “Electromedia.” Such work informed Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable and Woody and Steina Vasulka’s The Kitchen. With the rediscovery of this material, Tambellini’s work has become the subject of great interest for early new media. Nitehawk is thrilled to screen a selection of his works (1965-2005) and introduce his films to new audiences.
Special thank you to curator Joe Ketner, Anna Salamone, and Aldo Tambellini.
