No More Excuses

For the final night of our retrospective, it’s a special evening just for our Cinefamily members: an evening of conversation and rarities, odds ‘n ends, and bits ‘n pieces with Robert Downey, Sr. Not only will he present rarely-screened works like Rittenhouse Square (his 2005 impressionistic, music-filled documentary about a small Philadelphia park) and an Anthology Film Archives restoration of 1968’s No More Excuses (a compilation of Downey’s earliest shorts and assorted improprieties), but also various films he loves, and films he’s been working on — and maybe even a few surprises.

The Wilson Exercises


631 W. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA 90012


What if an art exhibition were an exercise, and the preparations toward a process of common exercising between artists, ideas, hosts and curators? Would it shift how we understand development and time—the time of making and of experiencing? For the exhibition at REDCAT, Anna Craycroft and Mark Vives have been invited to work collaboratively in an experimental project titled The Wilson Exercises. The repeated interactions between the two artists will lead to the development of a collective language through riffs, point/counterpoint dynamics, and provocations. Through a back-and-forth process of exchanges between their two distinct fields of expertise, the artists will explore novel processes of learning in the real-time space of the exhibition.

The Wilson Exercises is a multiple venue sequence: at Rogaland Kunstsenter in Stavanger, Norway, the artists exercised together during an intensive boot-camp-meets-think-tank that will take shape as a semi-public schedule of events that will define and continue into the gallery presentation at REDCAT.

Opening Reception: Sat, Dec 13 6-9pm
On View: Tues-Sun 12-6pm or intermission
