Since its founding in 2002, Future Tenant has sought to become Pittsburgh’s destination for raw, innovative artistic experiences from across all visual, literary and performing disciplines. Located on the city’s downtown Cultural District, the multidisciplinary art and performance space provides a laboratory setting for artists, arts managers, and audiences to explore the limits of the creative expression, presentation and interpretation of various art forms. On June 7th, the venue will showcase a film-related exhibition as part of the Three Rivers Arts Festival.
Inventory: The Orgone Archive, Pittsburgh 13 offers a decade’s worth of promotion and propaganda in the form of posters, stickers and bits of paper created by The Orgone Archive for its cinema outings. Orgone is a Pittsburgh-based motion picture archive and screening outfit specializing in inscrutable epiphanies, toilet trims, unknown what-have-yous, perfect industrial rolls, home movie printing tests, corporate comedies, Warholian strikebreaking screeds, the all-around beautiful and everything else. Originally founded in 1993 as Orgone Cinema by Jeff Armstrong, Michael Johnsen and Greg Pierce as a break-even motion picture exhibition group dedicated to a sincere film culture, it presented unique monthly shows of home movies, industrial, educational, experimental, and documentary films, light and sound performances, and visiting film and videomakers at the Silver Eye Center for Photography on the South Side. Orgone is also (and was) a traveling cinema band that screens and performs films at home and nationally.
