Deluxe Screening Room, IN-222E
2 Sussex Avenue, Toronto, ON M5S 1J5
Join us next Thursday and Friday for a book launch and screening, hosted by AD HOC and the Cinema Studies Institute of Michael Zryd's Hollis Frampton: Navigating the Infinite Cinema! 7PM, room 222E. Over the course of two nights, we will screen the whole of Frampton's seven-part serial work Hapax Legomena.
Michael Zryd on Frampton's series' title: "Hapax Legomena engages a playful tension between specificity and generalization. The Latin term hapax legomena translates as 'things said once,' denoting when a word appears only once in a work or oeuvre. The term points to singularities, which Frampton immediately complicates by using it as the title for a serial work in which there is repetition, difference, and development. Even the title itself is 'said twice,' recycled from a poetry volume he had previously planned to write."
