Unravel at the Whitney Museum of American Art

For the residency at the Whitney, Unravel brought celluloid to new audiences in an accessible and hands-on way, stressing the experimental and tactile nature of collaborative camera-less filmmaking. We facilitated workshops with seven different community groups and schools, and staged three large-scale open access workshop events for families, teens and Whitney members, alongside the Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art 1905-2016 exhibition.

Footage produced during the workshops was edited into a short film for screening on the final day of the residency. Each frame of the film related directly to one square foot of the 18,000-square-foot Neil Bluhm Family Galleries, where Dreamlands was installed.

UNRAVEL NYC: Chris Paul Daniels, Maria Anastassiou, Joanna Byrne and Kelvin Brown.
