ART OFF THE WALL: Swoon's "Submerged Collaborations"

Thursday, June 12, 2014

6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Screening: Flood Tide

Flood Tide (Todd Chandler, 2013, 70 min) is a collaboration with the Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea; a project dreamed up by the artist Swoon and built by a group of artists and performers who floated seven large sculptures down the Hudson River. Flood Tide interweaves documentation of this journey with layers of fiction, mythology, and oral history to create a film that both documents and reimagines the real-life project. The film features an all-original score by the band Dark Dark Dark. View the trailer here.
