Hollis Frampton: Screening Room with Robert Gardner

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

This program features a 1977 conversation with artist Hollis Frampton, a major figure in the American experimental film movement of the 1960s and ’70s. The segment was excerpted from the pioneering television series Screening Room, which focused on experimental film and aired from 1973 to 1980.

Here Frampton discusses his work and screens clips from a number of his films, including Maxwell’s Demon (1968), Surface Tension (1968), Critical Mass (1971), Pas De Trois (1975), and Lumier Bits (later titled Magellan). The program also includes a discussion of Lemon (1969), which is on view in the exhibition The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973.


The Renegades: American Avant-Garde Film, 1960–1973 is made possible by generous support from Elizabeth Redleaf. Major support to preserve and digitize the Ruben/Bentson Film and Video Study Collection is generously provided by the Bentson Foundation.
