FIAF's Crossing the Lines Festivalhttp://www.thirteen.org/sundayarts/blog/film/crossing-and-blurring-the-lines/751/
The quantity of cross-genre events in the festival reflects a high level of artistic ambition, but it also broaches the idea that new art is losing the walls that have traditionally kept genres in separate chambers. Installations in galleries contain video and digital elements that bring an aspect of performance to the proceedings, such as Visual System’s Magical City at FIAF Gallery. Marie Maillard’s work Wall 0909, at Luxe Gallery and FIAF, is described as video/wallpaper. Metamkine, a music/film collaborative, creates meta work—“simultaneously a performance and its document,” per the press materials. And Steve Cohen’s Knock ‘Em Dead, at Center for Performance Research, alludes to those interred in various cemeteries around the city; he will also show film clips from public interactions observed during the process.
