MFA Thesis Exhibition: Mike Hoolboom - "Your Face Arrived"

Apr 4, 2014 to Jun 7, 2014

Your Face Arrived brings two deeply personal, multi-award winning AIDS vidoes by experimental filmmaker Mike Hoolboom into conversation.

Frank’s Cock (1993, 8 min.) was made in the heat of the plague years, fueled by Callum Keith Rennie’s blood perfect monologue. It won a Golden Leopard in Locarno and was named the best Canadian short at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Twenty years later, Buffalo Death Mask (2013, 23 min.) convenes a laughter-filled hauntology between Hoolboom and Canadian artist Stephen Andrews. The film won the FIPRESCI (International Film Critics) Award in Oberhausen as well as awards in Zagreb, Ann Arbor and Bucharest.
