Lewis Klahr will be presented with the 2013 Stan Brakhage Award by Phil Solomon on Sunday, November 10, at the Sie FilmCenter following the screening of several of his films. A reception in his honor follows.
“Lewis Klahr’s films unspool like Delphic visions or vignettes glimpsed in a crystal ball in which dream, memory, and history—and past, present, future, and phantom tenses—are indistinguishable,” writes Chris Stults in Film Comment magazine. “The necessity of interpretive engagement is crucial to the power of his work.”
Called the “reigning proponent of cut and paste” by J. Hoberman of The Village Voice, the master collagist has been making cutting-edge movies since 1977. He is known for his uniquely idiosyncratic experimental films and cutout animations. Far removed from from the smooth, illusionist techniques of hand-drawn or digital animation, Klahr’s collages move in fits and starts. The artist has called his work “the pastness of the present,” reanimating movie genres, consumer-culture ephemera, and pop sounds, revealing in the process that the outmoded and obsolete are still with us.
Klahr’s films have screened extensively in the United States, Europe, and Asia—in prestigious venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and Redcat, and in numerous film festivals, including New York, Toronto, Hong Kong, and London. He also has received commissions from European arts organizations in Copenhagen and Rotterdam. His work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Klahr, who was ranked fourth in a recent poll of the top 50 experimental filmmakers by Film Comment, teaches at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles.
