Art School: Film/Video

A Program for Walker Art Center Members

Part of Art School: What the %#@! Is Contemporary Art?

Film: The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973

This session of Art School guides participants through a discussion of the history of film, focusing on experimental filmmaking. A guided gallery visit to see the exhibition The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973 follows.

Art School: Film is led by Genevieve Yue, a CFD postdoctoral fellow at Macalester College whose research interests include American experimental film and video, feminist film theory, contemporary East Asian cinema, and media history and theory. Yue is an editor of Discourse: Journal for Theoretical Studies in Media and Culture and an associate programmer at Los Angeles Filmforum. Her essays and criticism have appeared in such publications as Reverse Shot, Grey Room, LA Weekly, Cinema Scope, Artforum.com, Film Comment, and Film Quarterly.

Art School demystifies contemporary art by putting it into context—culturally, historically, and personally. Through short, succinct sessions, you’ll come to understand what the fuss is all about—and even feel like a connoisseur yourself. This program for Walker members is copresented by the University of Minnesota Departments of Art and Art History.
