Artists / Films: The Fine Art of Cinema from the USC Film Archives

This screening event presents a variety of approaches to cinema and
visual arts by artists who worked across the imaginary divide that
separates the “movies” from fine art practice. Some of these films show
artists at work, but move beyond the mere document of art making.
Others use cinema to embalm time and preserve the ephemeral. And some
treat film itself as a medium for plastic sculpture.

Films will include (all 16mm):

Jackson Pollock (Hans Namuth and Paul Falkenberg, 1951)

Sort of a Commercial for an Icebag (Michael Hugo, 1969), featuring
Claes Oldenburg

Paul Revere (Richard Serra and Joan Jonas, 1971)

Hand Catching Lead (Richard Serra, 1968)

Powers of Ten (Charles and Ray Eames, 1978)

T-Hybrid V-1 (Keith Sonnier, 1971)

Corridor (Standish Lawder, 1970), sound by Terry Riley
