Exhibition Dates: January 11, 2014 - February 8, 2014

ACME. is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new photographs by Los Angeles based artist Miles Coolidge. The show will feature two new bodies of work: a single large-scale photograph titled Francis Gate, and a separate series of photographs, titled Coal Seam, Bergwerk Prosper-Haniel, depicting the interior of a German coal mine. Both new bodies of work capture early modes of industrialization that initiated the culture of modernity that continues to define our existence and affect our landscape.

Designed by James B. Francis in 1850, Francis Gate was built to protect the new industrial city of Lowell from being flooded by the Merrimac River, which provides water for the canal systems that powered its textile factories. Sluice gates at the facility regulate water entering the waterways.

GRADUATE STUDENT MICHAEL MOSHE DAHAN AT ROTTERDAM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Michael Moshe Dahan's film "Two Points of Failure" (2013) has been officially selected to have its International Premiere in competition at the Rotterdam International Film Festival (RIFF) between January 22 and February 2, 2014.   The film was previously screened at the MAK Center for Art and Architecture in Los Angeles as part of "Specters of Godard" where the artist spoke alongside Kerry Tribe and Constanze Ruhm in a panel discussion moderated by Juli Carson.

Conceived and directed by Dahan (MFA 2014, Department of Art) and Produced by N. Braxton Pope, "Two Points of Failure" frames the demise of analogue film technology (1976-2013) and takes as its primary subject matter Godard's failed prototype for a compact 35mm camera.  Named the Aaton 35-8, this apparatus, while small and portable, suffered from myopia and was simply too loud.  "Two Points of Failure" (2013) is about this camera that could not see; the film functions as an index of a disappearance.
