Mono No Aware

302 Bedford Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11249

MONO NO AWARE is a non-profit cinema-arts organization working to promote connectivity through the cinematic experience.  Based in Brooklyn, NY,  MONO NO AWARE presents artist-in-person screenings, organizes analogue filmmaking workshops, facilitates equipment rentals, plans cinema field trips, and hosts an annual exhibition for contemporary artists and international filmmakers whose work incorporates Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm or altered light projections as part of a live performance or installation.  The 2014 MONO NO AWARE logo image is a scan of “45 7 Broadway”, a 16MM film graciously provided by Tomonari Nishikawa.

MONO NO AWARE began as a single exhibition of expanded cinema performance that has grown into an organization promoting cinematic art, film screenings, and performance year round.

The annual exhibition is held to give open forum to work that, because of its transient nature, might not otherwise find a venue in a traditional movie theater, gallery or stage. Inherent in the work is a sense of connectivity and shared viewer experience. The curated program focuses on live projected elements as part of sculpture, installation and performance. Streaming digital media and internet content tend to foster the singular, passive viewing experience. MONO NO AWARE, the exhibition, creates an ephemeral environment for work that is counter to excess and accessibility. To emphasize this distinction, we exhibit work that is one part celluloid film or live altered light projection.
