A Weekend of Short Works Programs, Lectures & Discussions:

Part I - Repetition/Reuse/and the Remake

Part II -The Amateur and the Avant-Garde

The Stan Brakhage Symposium, already a tradition in the not very traditional world of avant-garde filmmaking, will again be hosted this year by the University of Colorado at Boulder. In a weekend dedicated to the exploration of new ideas in cinema art, guest curator Ed Halter will explore the role of repetition/reuse/and the remake in contemporary artists’ works, and CU faculty professors Christina Battle and Jennifer Peterson will investigate the relationship of the amateur and the Avant-Garde. Presenters will include Ed Halter, art historian David Joselit, Andy Lampert, Annette Michelson, Sylvia Schedelbauer, Phil Solomon, and Elizabeth Subrin.

In an extension of one of Brakhage’s particular interests, there will also be a program of home movies from the collection of the Academy Film Archive presented by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences archivist Lynne Kirste, as well as a number of short-works programs (films, videos, and performances).

Sponsors of the 2010 Brakhage Symposium include:
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the William H. Donner Foundation in conjunction with The Brakhage Center (Daniel Boord, Director),
The University of Colorado College of Arts and Sciences, and the CU Film Studies Program.
