     In conjunction with the Part Two: Department of Art and Art History Faculty Exhibition, Professor Teresa Hubbard will present the single-screen version of a recent video work, Méliès, created in collaboration with Alexander Birchler. The video is the second installment in their trilogy exploring the social and physical sites of cinema. Méliès investigates the residue of cinema and social terrain around the site of a mountain in the Chihuahua Desert in West Texas named Movie Mountain. According to local residents, the mountain is named such because a silent film was shot there in the early 1900s. Searching for the origin of the mountain's name, Hubbard/Birchler embarked on a journey traversing the landscape of early silent-era film production. Join the VAC for this special screening and a post-film discussion with Teresa Hubbard.
