Hauser & Wirth is debuting Ciné Pluto as a quarterly film series at its 18th Street exhibition space in New York City. Ciné Pluto was established in 1998 as an invite-only microcinema, created by the artists Greg Singer and Janet Kusmierski. The couple initially launched Ciné Pluto in their downtown loft.

Over the years they held many unique screenings for dedicated audiences. The artists often prioritized analog formats, including a broad range of media from 8mm and 16mm to 35mm slides and VHS. Singer and Kusmierski conceived of Ciné Pluto in the style of old salons, providing an intimate atmosphere with an esoteric repertoire.

Greg Singer is an artist and former projectionist at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He received his MFA from Yale University and has shown his art throughout New York since the 1960s. Janet Kusmierski has been painting for over 50 years. Her art is distinguished for its intuitiveness in figuration, color abstraction and coincidental quality.

For its inaugural public screening Ciné Pluto will present Nicolás Echevarría's feature Cabeza de Vaca, along with other Western-themed shorts. The screening takes place on June 28, 2024 and is open to the public. Space is limited and reservations are required for attendance. For more information check the Hauser & Wirth site.
