"Sunday, Suddenly", "Pale Vellum Dreams" videos

Both videos are part of the Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society's Dream Films series exhibited by New York based artist Zoe Beloff.

Starting in 1926, the Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society held annual competitions in which members recreated their dreams on 16mm film and then gathered to analyze them. Their films may be seen as a window onto the hopes, fears, and fantasies of a changing cross-section of people who made up the social fabric of Coney Island in the 20th century, from immigrant Jews and Italians to wealthy bohemians and young gay men exploring their sexuality in the 1960s.

Zoe Beloff's work has been featured at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Pompidou Center in Paris.

She has been awarded fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, The Radcliffe Institute at Harvard, and the New York Foundation for the Arts, among others.
