In the Nashville Cultural Arts Project’s latest lecture series Insight? Outta Site!, Brooklyn-based writer and curator McGarry steps up as the latest speaker. Only he doesn’t plan to pontificate from the podium. This event isn’t a mere lecture; this series is designed for audience participation. As a co-director and programmer of New York’s Migrating Forms film festival, widely published writer and curator McGarry has shown his insight into contemporary cinema, whipping up a superb melange of avant-garde films and documentaries from around the world. This year’s festival included Petition, perhaps the angriest film ever made about contemporary Chinese society; a retrospective of Godard collaborator Jean-Pierre Gorin (Poto and Cabengo); and Butterflies Have No Memories, an hour-long glimpse into the unique world of Filipino director Lav Diaz, better known for 9-hour films. McGarry requests that you bring a dish, drink or question and avoid acting like a couch potato, so prepare some thoughts about social engagement with contemporary art. Seating is free but limited; be sure to RSVP to email@example.com by June 1.
