One of the most influential chroniclers of, and ambassadors for, experimental film in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, P. Adams Sitney will receive the 2010 Stan Brakhage Vision Award.
In 1974, Sitney wrote Visionary Film, the groundbreaking textbook on avant-garde filmmaking that offered a uniquely comprehensive perspective on the aesthetics of visionary post–World War II cinema in the United States. Currently a professor of visual arts at Princeton University, Sitney cofounded (with Jonas Mekas) theAnthology Film Archives in New York City, was a regular contributor to Artforum and was a major critical leader and intellectual supporter of the New American Cinema movement that peaked in the 1970s. He was married to the late activist-filmmaker Marjorie Keller. Following the presentation of the 2010 Stan Brakhage Vision Award, he will introduce a package of short avant-garde works by Marie Menken, Stan Brakhage and Ms. Keller.
