The Black Box Theater showcases rotating exhibitions of contemporary artists who use film or video as their creative medium. Films or videos run continuously.

See films by Rivane Neuenschwander, including Quarta-Feira de Cinzas/Epilogue (2006, color, 5:48 min.) Rivane Neuenschwander (Brazilian, born 1967, lives and works in Brazil) includes themes of chance and improvisation in her films and is perhaps best known for her photographic series. She was a finalist for the Hugo Boss award in 2004. Works include Quarta-Feira de Cinzas/Epilogue (2006) -- Portuguese for Ash Wednesday -- a collaboration with artist Cao Guimaraes and offers a mesmerizing close-up view of a community of ants hauling large, thin, colored flecks of confetti from Carnival celebrations.
