Ocularis at 10

Stay connected and enjoy the #MuseumFromHome

Jan 20–22, 2007


Founded in 1996 as a rooftop film series in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Ocularis evolved into a weekly cinema at Galapagos Art Space. Artforum called Ocularis “one of the most innovative film venues in New York.” In commemoration of a highly eventful decade, this retrospective screening—collectively curated by ten key Ocularis organizers past and present (Donal O’Ceilleachair, Marie Losier, Jonathan Howell, Isabelle Dupuis, Karyn Riegel, Henriette Huldisch, Moira Tierney, Sophie Fenwick, Lauren Cornell, and Thomas Beard)—reflects the diversity of programming that established Ocularis’s reputation as a vibrant forum, outside galleries and museums, for the contemporary moving image.

Organized by Charles Silver, Associate Curator, Department of Film.
