Off The Wall

  • Arts + Literature Laboratory 2021 Winnebago Street Madison, WI, 53704 United States (map)

The Off The Wall screening series, which debuted last year, showcases contemporary video art from multiple artistic perspectives, including both local and international. A partnership between Arts + Literature Laboratory and Madison Film Forum, the series was founded and is curated by local artists Simone Doing and Max Puchalsky, and screenings take place outdoors in ALL's driveway. In their 2016 inaugural series, Doing and Puchalsky chose works by 35 artists, culling down 450 submissions from 50 different countries. The works themselves vary both thematically and in form. Artists tackle internet culture, identity, and environmental issues and communicate their perspectives in stop-motion, animation, and experimental documentary forms. Due to the success of 2016’s series, Off The Wall is expanding, taking place every Saturday in August featuring different works on each of the four nights. Artists include James Bridle, The Smyth Brothers, Lizzie Fitch & Ryan Trecartin, Ian Haig, Sky Hopinka, Taryn Ward, and Keiichi Matsuda. —Emili Earhart
