Liberty Hall and the Invisible Hand Gallery are teaming up to present a showing of the films of Mike Anderson, followed by a Q&A; with the Brooklyn, N.Y.-based artist.
The event is set for 7 p.m. Thursday at Liberty Hall, 644 Massachusetts St. Admission is $4.
Anderson creates the realization of a self-invented myth through his narrative project, “The Giant,” according to the event announcement. Through his film installation, Anderson offers an opportunity for the viewer to become immersed in his constructed universe, challenging their perception of the physically real and unreal by skillfully rendering a digital environment. Originally a painter, Anderson applies his knowledge of the medium when using digital film software.
In addition to his film installation, Anderson will display photographic prints of digital sculpture and a book with sketches from the creation of “The Giant.” “Mike Anderson: Giant” opens on Friday at the Invisible Hand Gallery, newly located at 810 Pennsylvania St. inside the Cider Gallery.
