Short Films by Jonas Mekas Surface Online [UPDATED]

In light of yesterday’s shocking news that avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas is suing art dealer Harry Stendhal for a supposed swindle, I wanted to share one positive highlight of the business relationship between Stendhal and Mekas that just surfaced online … 14 short films, which include three episodes of his 365 web project from 2007 and 11 from the 40 Short Films release in 2006. UPDATE: Thanks to an anonymous commenter, I learned that ALL the 365 web videos are on an newer Jonas Mekas site that doesn’t seem to show up on individual video searches. ENJOY ALL 40 SHORT FILMS AND ALL 365 VIDEOS AT jonasmekasfilms.com. THANK YOU, ANONYMOUS COMMENTER!

Exploring the Ruptures, Gaps & Erasures of the Ottoman Empire

This November, a new exhibition that hopes to explore the artistic boundaries and terrain of the Ottoman Empire will open at Pratt Manhattan Gallery. Titled Blind Dates, the show is the brainchild of curators Defne Ayas and Neery Melkonian, and their goals are lofty as they set out to trace: “… ‘what remains’ of the peoples, places and cultures that once constituted the diverse geography of the Ottoman Empire (1299-1922).”
