**In "Splitting" and "Bingo/Ninths," artist Gordon Matta-Clark makes large-scale
cuts in the walls and floors of houses, to stunning effect.
**Manfred Kirchheimer’s "Stations of the
Elevated" combines the music of jazz legend Charles Mingus with vintage footage of graffiti art on the traveling subway
trains of New York. Filmed a half-decade before the landmark graffiti films
"Wild Style" and "Style Wars" - and currently unavailable commercially - this
wordless, lyrical study is a classic document. "Stations of the Elevated" is
shown by special arrangement with the filmmaker.
**Meanwhile in 2007 Atlanta, a group of artists named Public and Private give
acoustic music performances in carefully chosen abandoned spaces, highlighting
the fleeting beauty of our rapidly changing city.
**Filmmaker Blake Williams provides a newly created, poetic video portrait of
Public and Private: Brian
