August 25, 2012 – January 6, 2013
Night Hunter House, a recent Hood acquisition now on view for the first time, is by Denver-based multimedia artist Stacey Steers. The dollhouse is conceived around and incorporates segments from Steers's sixteen-minute handmade film Night Hunter (2011) on ten small HDTV screens embedded in the house. Visitors who peek into the rooms through the house's windows are exposed to a surreal world filled with snakes, giant moths, pulsating eggs, and strange happenings. Silent film star Lillian Gish (1893–1993) has been transported from several of her best-known films to become the dweller of the house and the film's protagonist through Steers's expert collage artistry.
The film Night Hunter will be shown continuously in the Hood Museum of Art Auditorium at the following times: Tuesdays, 12:00–3:00 PM; Wednesdays, 12:00–7:00 PM; and Thursdays, 12:00–3:00 PM.
3 October, Wednesday, 6:30–8:30 PM
