2013, All day
See also The Brakhage Center for Media Arts
Through screenings and discussions the 9th Brakhage symposium will explore art practices, and assumptions about cinema art, the historical avant-garde and the media arts. We have seen, for many decades, the parallel development of experimental filmmaking art alongside electronic moving image making. This year’s symposium will play host to perspectives on the relation and poetics of these practices.
This years programmers are: Glenn Phillips, Principal Project Specialist and Consulting Curator Department of Architecture and Contemporary Art at the Getty Research Institute, Mark Toscano, Archivist and Preservationist at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and Don Yannacito, University of Colorado Boulder First Person Cinema Guest Filmmaker Programmer. Artists Jennifer Reeder and Jennifer West will be joined by Sally Dixon (former Director of Film In the Cities program ), Suranjan Ganguly (University of Colorado, Boulder), John Powers (University of Wisconsin, Madison) and Tom Gunning (University of Chicago).
(Jennifer Reeder will be a visiting artist with the Department of Art and Art History.)
Special guests Steina and Woody Vasulka will be attendance.
