For 3rd Friday Durham this February, we are collaborating with The Citizen to present a screening of recent short works by Terence Nance on the roof. Trained as a visual artist, Nance blurs the line between genres, creating visually rich works that incorporate elements of experimental film, dance, music, and performance. The Citizen has selected a series of projects made over the last five years – many of which perform double duty as music videos and short films – that give voice to emerging and underground musicians, dancers, and makers. Nance’s distinctive style is dizzyingly beautiful and multilayered, revealing the intricacy of a creative mind that mirrors the complexity of contemporary life.
The works will be on view on The Roof Feb. 19, 6-9pm, weather permitting.
TERENCE NANCE is a Brooklyn-based artist and 2014 John Simon Guggenheim Fellow. In the wake of his debut feature film AN OVERSIMPLIFICATION OF HER BEAUTY, the New York Times identified Terence as one of “20 Directors to Watch.” He was also selected by Filmmaker Magazine as one of the “25 New Faces of Independent Film.” Terence is an accomplished music video director and is currently developing his sophomore feature, THE LOBBYISTS.
