KANSAS CITY, MO.- Electromediascope, the award-winning popular series at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, is an international survey of contemporary film, video and new media. For its winter series, February 2010, Electromediascope offers three programs of film and videos called "Shifting Frames of Reference", presenting works by four artists: Ken Kobland (USA), Seoungho Cho (South Korea), Lu Chunsheng (China) and Ernie Gehr (USA).

“Lu Chunsheng and Seoungho Cho’s video works examine and call into question local experiences that ultimately have to do with how we know and re-imagine the world. Ken Kobland and Ernie Gehr explore beauty and the pleasure of shifting visual perceptions of places that have been constructed and inhabited over time,” said Patrick Clancy, professor and chair, Photography and Digital Filmmaking, at the Kansas City Art Institute.

Clancy, with artist Gwen Widmer, is Co-curator of Electromediascope. They were honored this year by the KC FilmFest with an award for the series, which began in 1993. At the Nelson-Atkins, they work with Jan Schall, Sanders Sosland Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art, and Leesa Fanning, Associate Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art.

Films featured are shown in Atkins Auditorium at the Museum. Admission is free. Reservations are recommended. All starting times are 7 p.m.:

• Feb. 12–Ideas of Order in Cinque Terre, by Kobland; Horizontal Silence, by Cho; ws.2, by Cho; I Left My Silent House, by Cho; Before the Appearance of the First Steam Engine, by Chunsheng.

• Feb. 19–Precarious Garden, by Gehr; The Curve Which Can Cough, by Chunsheng; The Square Loaded with Nuclear Power Is Going to America, Chunsheng; History of Chemistry 1, Chunsheng; The First Man Who Bought a Juicer Bought It Not for Drinking Juice, Chunsheng.
