Views from the Avant-Garde starts tonight!

October 3, 2008

Writing in the New York Times, A. O. Scott hails the “brilliantly challenging new work” in this year’s Views from the Avant-Garde, which begins tonight with a screening and panel discussion on Guy Debord’s 1978 work, In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni.

From "The White Rose" by Bruce Conner, screening during a tribute to the influential filmmaker. A. O. Scott writes: “A reminder that the boundaries among collapse, sculpture, cinema and poetry are fungible and porous, and also that this country has occasionally produced artists whose imaginations defy limitation and convention with startling ease.”

And don’t miss special coverage of Views on the filmlinc blog:

Film Comment’s Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa sits down with some of the program’s contemporary voices: Ken Jacobs, plus Taylor Dunne and Joel Schlemowitz.
