Negativland Live Double-Feature

Opens on June 2

Run Time: 240 min.

WE CAN REALLY FEEL LIKE WE’RE HERE

Negativland + SUE-C return to Lowell, Massachusetts in the Spring of 2024 with a Special LIVE Double-Feature!

Legendary sound collage group Negativland and “real-time cinema” visual
artist SUE-C collaborate to bring you their latest audio-visual performance
about our minds, our realities, and the evolving forms of media and
technology that orchestrate our perceptions: WE CAN REALLY FEEL LIKE WE’RE HERE.

Not only will we be screening the amazing documentary Stand By For Failure (from Director Ryan Worsley) again, but this will be followed by a live stage performance of Negativland in WE CAN REALLY FEEL LIKE WE’RE HERE accompanied by SUE-C’s sumptuous visuals!

On Negativland:

“An urgent show by Negativland and artist SUE-C calls time on a tech dystopia that is as malevolent as it is stupid… to meet the terrifying contemporary moment… as the world slides incrementally into meltdown.” 

– The Wire Magazine

“Negativland have made a rewarding career out of being prodigious consumers of media who then digest it and recontextualize it, emphasizing mediated reality’s crazy-making absurdity and the infinite malleability of perception and ‘truth.’”

– Dave Segal, The Stranger

“Negativland are proud subverters of culture, causing trouble while having fun.”

– NPR Tiny Desk Concert

 

 

 

 

On Stand By For Failure [Director: Ryan Worsley]:

“If you want to be inspired by individuals who dare to bust down the doors of art’s gatekeepers, then STAND BY FOR FAILURE is the way to go.”

— FILM THREAT

“Few artists have logged as many hours on the battlefield of fair use, let alone questioned as persistently the associated legal constraints around intellectual property, as Negativland, whose sonic, visual and performance appropriations and parodies have challenged eyeballs, eardrums and moral standards alike since the late 1970s.”

— THE WIRE

“40+ years of Negativland metamedia, recontextualized into popular feature length documentary entertainment format by Ryan Worsley. You’ve seen and heard it all! But you’ve never seen and heard it like this! ”

— BOING BOING

Tickets Available Soon!
