Who's a Filmmaker? Cinema beyond the Darkened Room

Wednesday, May 6, 2009. 6:30 PM

This program examines the fluidity of boundaries in film. Art and film critics and museum curators address the idea of cinema in the art world, where attitudes toward the moving image seem to differ from those toward "movies." Eleanor Heartney, contributing editor to Art in America and Artpress, addresses how artists borrow and manipulate actual cinematic works for different ends and how they use and subvert cinematic techniques, and Amy Taubin, film critic, discusses the construction of the temporal and social experiences in both a traditional cinematic environment and in art installations. Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film, and organizer of the exhibition, moderates a conversation.
