The Clocktower Gallery presents MVT 2 (Music Video Time), the second in a series of music video screenings organized by Nicholas Chatfield-Taylor and Joe Ahearn. The program showcased work from emerging music video directors for Dan Deacon, Das Racist, Big Freedia, Man Forever, Guardian Alien, Parts & Labor, Titus Andronicus, and others; previous works by Chatfield-Taylor; and was the world premiere of Unstoppable Death Machine's "Do The Devo," a hand-drawn, crowd-sourced music video produced during Chatfield-Taylor's residency at the Clocktower. The screening included work from Ben O'Brien, Bob Weisz, Casey Coleman, Jay Buim, Matt Marlin, Lucas Crane, Thomas De Napoli, Scott & Karl, Guillaime Panariello, Dennis Roberts and others.
The night also featured Thanksgiving Deux, Dinnervisuals, a totally edible sculpture/video installation by Thu Tran and Christopher Duffy, which was developed over the duration of Tran’s residency at the Clocktower. The very same night Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels' Crystal Cavern celebrated its closing while Babycastles offered a preview of their Babyharvester installation in collaboration with Slice Harvester.
The event took place at the Clocktower Gallery in Tribeca on November 28th from 6pm to 9pm. RSVP is required to firstname.lastname@example.org
