SPECTRA: A Nomadic Platform for Experimental Film and Video is a new Kansas City initative to bring contemporary moving image artworks by regional, national and international artists to local screens.

SPECTRA launches September 24 at la Esquina with the Kansas City premiere of the LA-based artist Sarah Raras hour-long video work “A Ray Array,” which has been presented at Marlborough and James Cohan galleries in New York and most recently at [space], London. Featuring a soundtrack created by Lucky Dragons, A Ray Array is composed of 16 video chapters that explore the subject of interference using simple sets, everyday objects, and subtle special effects. Rara’s work will be prefaced by the short piece “Synchromy” by Norman McLaren.

SPECTRA is a collaborative effort of Kansas City based artists Jeff Eaton, Yann Aguirre, Tim Amundson, Bobby Howsare, and Crystal Ann Brown.  This first screening is curated by Jeff Eaton, who recently relocated to Kansas City from New York, where he was previously Curatorial Associate/Archivist at White Columns, NY and Curatorial Fellow at the Neuberger Museum of Art.
