"Charlie Ahearn: Artist Portrait Videos (Martin Wong)", 2007, still

Part of the current Artists Space exhibition, Macho Man, Tell It To My Heart: Collected by Julie Ault, is a series of film and video screenings over the course of the next few months. Curated by Jason Simon and Julie Ault, the moving images are key to the conversation Macho Man inspires. In an introduction for the film and video series, Simon writes:

...moving-image works on the social forces affecting artistic production are included in the...program, allowing an audience to bridge individual works at Artists Space to a shared consciousness captured by the filmmakers. In this way a program has emerged as an alternate version of the exhibition, itself drawn from Ault’s long engagement with creative practices.

Visual AIDS encourages people to check out the series!
