PIXILERATIONS [v.7] is a new media showcase in Providence, Rhode Island that investigates the state of new media arts through installations, concert performances and film/video screenings. It is part of the larger FirstWorks Festival (www.first-works.org), a multidimensional performing arts festival held in Providence each fall.


Pixilerations is produced by FirstWorks in collaboration with the Rhode Island School of Design, Brown University, and the City of Providence’s Department of Art, Culture + Tourism.


Now in its seventh year, Pixilerations showcases groundbreaking work in digital music and art. Local, national and international artists, selected from over 350 applicants, investigate issues ranging from the controversy around surveillance technologies to private space as commodity to the richness of digital technology as an artistic tool.


This year’s fringe festival sweeps to the far reaches of the global frontier with provocative installations by Taiwanese artist Dar-Kuen Wu, Rhode Island’s Megan and Murray McMillan, and REDUX (Mark Cetilia and Joe Cantrell). Pixilerations extends its reach to new venues with performances at Firehouse 13 (Providence’s West Side), and Machines With Magnets (Pawtucket).


Tuesday October 5 – 9:30pm
Cable Car Cinema, 204 South Main Street, 9:30p
Hosted by Magic Lantern Cinema
Join us for a line-up of new video art, animation, and experimental film from around the world.
