One of our readers , Vince Gonzales , is having a exhibit opening tonight of his images of the elements of the motion picture industry called “Tech Art”
“Since 2000, photographer Vince Gonzales has been capturing a unique side of the artifacts of motion picture technology: their beauty as objects. While most may see merely function â€“ a microphone, a splicer, a projector â€“ Gonzales uncovers dramatic shapes, distinctive textures and colors, hidden details of craftsmanship and design; in short, the remarkable aesthetics of these otherwise forgotten machines of the trade.
This exhibition, presented by the Academyâ€™s Science and Technology Council, showcases more than 30 of Gonzalesâ€™s best photographs from his ongoing exploration of filmmaking technology as art.
â€œTech Art: The Photography of Vince Gonzalesâ€ can be viewed whenever Academy public programs are hosted at the Dunn.”
And the reception is tonight. 7-9.
The Linwood Dunn Theater is located at the Academyâ€™s Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, 1313 North Vine Street, Hollywood, CA 90028. Parking is available behind the building through the entrance on Homewood Avenue (one block north of Fountain). For more information, please call the Academy at (310) 247-3600.
If you have an event or exhibition that we should help spread the word about, let us know.
Happy to help increase the peace. And attendance.
