Blame the Audience: A Film Series Organized by Jason Simon


In person: Jason Simon

Manny Farber, the inspiration behind the exhibition One Day at a Time: Manny Farber and Termite Art, was a painter, film critic, and professor of film studies at the University of California, San Diego. On the occasion of this exhibition, MOCA presents a film series inspired by Farber’s idiosyncratic and influential teaching organized by filmmaker, artist, and teacher Jason Simon, a former student of Farber’s. Simon introduces the first installment of this series, which features shorts by Farber favorites Michael Snow, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, and Joyce Wielands as well as a cinematic portrait of Farber by Chris Petit.

Priority tickets are available to MOCA members one hour before the program. Fifteen minutes before the program begins tickets will be released to non-members. One ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended.
