Greg is an artist and musician and, together with Jeff Armstrong and Michael Johnsen founded Orgone Cinema in 1993. Greg will be sharing rare and interesting films from the Orgone Archive.
The Orgone Archive is a motion picture archive and screening outfit based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 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 as a break-even motion picture exhibition group dedicated to a sincere film culture in Pittsburgh, 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 city’s South Side. Orgone is also (and was) a travelling cinema band that screens and performs films at home and nationally. Greg Pierce, Assistant Curator of Film and Video at The Andy Warhol Museum, is the current custodian of this proudly fringe collection. (This week will be held in Nevins Theater, Powell Campus Center)
