(Mahwah) – Ramapo College of New Jersey presents experimental filmmaker and artist Michael Snow Thursday, December 7 at 2 p.m. in the Adler Theater on the campus of Ramapo College of New Jersey. Snow will discuss past and present works, including two currently featured in the exhibition Seeing Double in the Kresge Gallery on the college campus through December 15. Sink” and A Casing Shelved” are among Snow’s earliest works. Like all the work in the exhibition, they use slide projection in unexpected ways: as a means to create art, not represent it. The event is free and open to the public.
A key figure in the development of structural and avant-garde film, Michael Snow is considered Canada’s best-known living artist. He is also an accomplished composer, musician, painter, sculptor, photographer and writer. Snow’s widely- acclaimed film Wavelength, made in 1966-1967, is considered to be a key work in the history of structuralist cinema. He has continued to break new ground in a variety of media, both filmic and digital.
The Adler Theater is located in the Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts at Ramapo College. For more information, call (201) 684 – 7147.
This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
