“Luzes relacionais” was part of the exhibition “Quasi Cinema” at the 2011 edition of Video_Dumbo / Dumbo Arts Festival. The exhibition, curated by Caspar Stracke and Gabriela Monroy, included works by Adam Bartholl, Ken Jacobs, and Andy Graydon, among other artists. From the festival’s website: “Quasi Cinema is a term that Brazilian artist Helio Oiticica coined in 1973 in reference to his experiments with film, slide projections, and new modes of cinematic reception. His ongoing series pursued the challenging attempt to distill the essence of cinema into a cinematic imaginary. The featured works in this exhibition are taking this concept as the outset for new arguments – some express this concept in media other than that of cinema itself, others re-appropropriate and “misuse” the primary functionality (and inherent poetics) of film projection.”
