The Chinati Foundation hosts a screening for artist in residence Bill Morrison. Decasia, which will be screened in Marfa on February 10th at 7:30 pm, along with a selection of additional films, is a 2002 work made from found footage, and features an original score by Michael Gordon. It was commissioned by the Basel Sinfonietta, and is a meditation on old, decaying silent movies. J. Hobermann in the Village Voice described Decasia as "the most widely acclaimed American avant-garde film of the fin-de siècle."
