Eye on a Director: Canyon Cinema Presented by Museum of Arts and Design
Eye on a Director: Canyon Cinema
From July 7 to August 18, 2016, Museum of Arts and Design in New York City presents its latest Eye on a Director film series, highlighting Canyon Cinema. Taking place on Thursdays at 7 pm, screenings focus on experimental documentaries created by independent film artists from the 1950s to the present. Working directly with MAD, Canyon’s staff and board of directors served as co-curators for this series, selecting works that reveal the history of an artistic community in parallel to American cinematic movements.
About Eye on a Director
With a focus on experimental craft, MAD’s Eye on a Director cinema screening series spotlights underrepresented voices in film and video history, featuring artists who actively test the limits of the medium and challenge viewers to expand their concept of the moving image. The series provides a platform for directors who resisted mainstream conventions and created unique bodies of work deserving of a retrospective.
Eye on a Director: Canyon Cinema is co-curated by Antonella Bonfanti, Rebecca Meyers, Seth Mitter, Michael Renov and Jeffrey Skoller of Canyon Cinema, in conjunction with Katerina Llanes, Manager of Public Programs, and Carson Parish, Audio-Visual Coordinator, of the Museum of Arts and Design. Special thanks to Max Goldberg and Scott MacDonald.
Presenting Partners: Anthology Film Archives, The Film-Makers’ Cooperative, Millennium Film Journal
