Last Year at Marienbad reduxВ is an exhibition, public program and publication that together examine how fictional narratives develop over time to form accepted knowledge of people, places, events and things. Inspired by the unconventional cinematic techniques such as nonlinear narrative and repetitive language used in the 1961 filmВ Last Year at MarienbadВ (directed by Alain Resnais, with screenplay by Alain Robbe-Grillet), the exhibitionВ Last Year at Marienbad reduxВ features works of art that deploy these and other devices: editing, character development, plot, mise-en-scГЁne and montage to disrupt, challenge and conflate what is understood as fact and fiction. The project explores how memory, meaning and, ultimately, an understanding of reality are shaped.

The Marienbad SessionsВ is a program of free public events held inside the exhibition site amidst the works of art. The events include a listening session taking the form of an open-ended essay composed of sound hosted byВ Dan Fox; a reading of a script about the mythology surrounding the figure of Gordon Matta-Clark written and performed byВ Jessamyn Fiore; a lecture on 1960s avant-garde film byВ Jens Hoffmann; a discussion of the exhibition withВ James Voorhies; and a screening of short films by Berlin-based artist and filmmakerВ Maya SchweizerВ and conversation with the curator. The Marienbad Sessions seeks to reclaim the space of exhibition as a public sphere, returning it to a learning site where groups of visitors experience real-time, lived engagement visually and intellectually among works of art on exhibit.

The Marienbad PapersВ is a book produced as part ofВ Last Year at Marienbad redux. ItВ is a hybrid publication combining characteristics of an art journal, catalogue essay, screenplay and art criticism, featuring a series of newly commissioned texts by Jennifer Allen, Jessamyn Fiore, Dan Fox, Jens Hoffmann and James Voorhies.В The Marienbad PapersВ will be released at a closing event on October 26. The book is made possible with a grant from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation.
