Paul D. Miller is a conceptual artist, writer and musician working in New York. Using archival footage and early avant-garde cinema mixed with his own music, Miller composes New York Is Now as an exploration of memory through the interplay of images and sounds, creating a digital multimedia opera about a city made of improvisations, disjunctions, overlapping histories and multiple rhythms. A conversation with Miller follows the screening.
Event takes place in the museum's Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium. Admission is free; no reservations required. Doors open at 6:30pm, event begins at 7pm.
