Having just covered 7950 miles in six weeks, media artists Bill Daniel and Vanessa Renwick will conclude their Western U.S. tour with shows featuring their experimental and documentary videos in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Olympia, Seattle, and Vancouver BC. Then through September and October, they’ll take their “Lucky Bum Film Tour” to the East Coast. These one-night, hit-and-run screenings happen in venues that range from basements and underground film collectives to college campuses and art galleries.
Bill Daniel’s films and photography have shown in festivals and galleries nationwide since the 1980’s, and have received awards from the Film Foundation, Texas Filmmaker Production Fund, The Pioneer Fund, and The Western States Media Alliance.
Venessa Renwick’s works have screened internationally at sites such as Cinematheque in Brighton England, The Kitchen in New York City, the Montreal Film Festival, Smartcinema in Amsterdam, The New York Underground Film Festival, The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, The Portland Institute of Contemporary Art and the Smithsonian.
Together, Daniel and Renwick are part of a growing network of microcinemas and underground art venues that host uncensored film and video work in galleries, warehouses, converted churches and basements.
