An Evening with Ken Jacobs

Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

In conjunction with Abstract Expressionism and Film, experimental filmmaker Ken Jacobs discusses the influence of Abstract Expressionism on his filmmaking career. Jacobs started making films in 1955, and studied abstract expressionist painting under Hans Hofmann from 1956 to 1957. Jacobs’s ideas for an Abstract Expressionist cinema are evident in films like Tom, Tom, The Piper’s Son (1969) and his use of a unique “double-analysis” projector setup.
