Founded during a period of vertiginous crossover and exchange within the arts, the Film-Makers’ Cooperative’s expansive collection attests to the lasting influence of a radically interdisciplinary spirit that flourished in avant-garde cultures of the 1960s.  It stands as a repository of cinema’s boundary-disturbing transactions with manifold artistic forms since mid-century; a space where film poems mix with adaptations of experimental theater and forays into cine-dance.  Approaching the Coop’s collection as an archive of intersections between seemingly discrete artistic practices and forms, this screening presents a series of films that respond cinematically to a range of different media, from architecture to object art, happenings, painting, and sculpture, revealing a filmic medium that is profoundly open to the insights and impulses of the other arts.

Since acquiring a small 3D camera I dawdle everywhere but prolonged bus-waits allow a continuity of images. A succession of time-exposures in depth show vehicular traffic as so many dismembered and creeping creatures.” -KJ

Jud Yalkut, who passed away in July at the age of 75, was a pioneer of intemedial art, creating film and video work that was formally radical while remaining deeply humanistic.

This program centers on Yalkut’s relationship with music, and features one of the pieces he made with video artist Nam June Paik, his landmark film Turn, Turn, Turn (1966), his portrait of composer John Cage, and his rarely-seen cinematic take on the Woodstock Festival, Aquarian Rushes (1970).
