Cinema in the Museum


The past two decades have witnessed the rise of cinema in the museum, yet there are many challenges to presenting work in this setting. Why are filmmakers so often relegated to screening programs? What are the long-term repercussions of this? Are there new strategies to move us forward? The artists, programmers and curators assembled in this panel will discuss the history of the moving image in the art institution, what it means for filmmakers working in a range of exhibition and online distribution platforms today and how film may allow us to think beyond the collector’s perspective as a form which can transcend physicality.

Panelists include: Garrett Bradley, Rhea Combs, Maori Karmael Holmes, Cauleen Smith, & Erin Christovale.
