Ye Dirty Olde Lab Shoppe presents:
The "Personal Cinema" of Bryan Konefsky

Friday November 29th 
Doors open 8:00-program begins at 9:00

Attention loyal Lab followers and other curious parties:
Your friends at the Lab Lecture Series have created a
fabulous new sub-series. Within this lovely construct, we
will bring the film and video work from a cast of artists
and filmmakers who hail from points across the country. The
inaugural presentation spotlights the
moving-picture-stylings of Bryan Konefsky, a filmmaker and
educator from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Konefsky will be on
hand to screen and discuss a selection of his short films,
which showcase a quirky, humorous approach to issues such
as identity, community and maleness.


Bryan Konefsky, his spouse, and their three lovely dogs
live in Albuquerque, New Mexico (a place Bryan refers to as
the Sandbox).  There, Bryan teaches film/video history and
production courses through the Media Arts Department at the
University of New Mexico.  Bryan is also a board member of
Basement Films (a regional film cooperative), a member of
the Na-Da performance group and serves on the board of
Directors of AC2 (a not-for-profit exhibition space). In
the Sandbox Bryan creates odd, little movies and video
installations that are often referred to as "personal

Konefsky's work has been screened/exhibited at venues such
as Artcite (Windsor, Ontario), the Long Beach Museum
(L.A.), the AFI Film Festival (L.A.), L.A.C.E. (L.A.), the
Dallas Video Festival (Texas), the Knitting Factory (NYC),
and the Kitchen (NYC).. Bryan also seems to spend a fair
amount of time at the Banff Centre for the Arts in Alberta,
Canada… though, no one is really sure why.  Oh, he says
"hi," and would really like to hear from you.
