In conjunction with his retrospective exhibition, Christopher Williams: The Production Line of Happiness, the artist joins Stuart Comer, MoMA's Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art, for a discussion of Williams's longstanding engagement with cinema. The conversation will touch upon Williams's Carte Blanche screening series, which features films by Bruce Conner, Tony Conrad, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Harun Farocki, Jean-Marie Straub and Daniele Huillet, Joris Ivens, Peter Kubelka, and Andy Warhol. Williams will also discuss and screen his own Super-8 films, made in 1979 while he was a student at CalArts. The evening will be introduced by Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, Department of Photography, and curator of the exhibition at MoMA.
