Arts: Cinema Remixed and Reloaded 

Wed., Oct. 24

CINEMA REMIXED AND RELOADED: BLACK WOMEN ARTISTS AND THE MOVING IMAGE SINCE 1970 at Spelman College Museum of Fine Art Wed., OCT. 24, feels like walking into a labyrinthine David Lynch film. Like Inland Empire or Lost Highway, womblike rooms and shadowed hallways open like Chinese boxes to reveal hidden secrets. Spelman's imaginative installation employs darkness, deep blue walls and a string of small viewing rooms, which provide a refreshing break from the usual white walls and antiseptic spaces where video work often appears. Those choices show the rewards of striving for an ambiance in some ways more "cinematic" than "art world." Cinema Remixed blends generations and approaches, from the funny, pop-culture-savvy work of Jessica Ann Peavy to the earthy, documentary-style approach of Camille Billops. Billops' 1987 "Older Women and Love" features matter-of-fact but subversive interviews with women of a certain age who speak frankly about their sexuality. For the rest of this review, click here. Through Dec. 8. $3 suggested donation. Tues.-Fri., 10 a.m.-4 p.m.; Sat., noon-4 p.m. 350 Spelman Lane. 404-270-5607. www.museum@spelman.edu.
