Join us for an in-person screening of Abstracting the Everyday: Works by the Women of The Film-Makers' Cooperative on Friday, March 4 at 7pm. Curated by Julia Curl.
Abstracting the Everyday highlights the vibrant personal visions of eight female members of the New York Film-Makers’ Cooperative. Departing from a realist, objective conception of the world, these artists implemented radical new techniques on film to plumb the depths of human consciousness. Sometimes ecstatic, sometimes haunting, the end result is a fascinating glimpse of the interior worlds of some of the most innovative experimental filmmakers of the 20th century.
The Film-Makers’ Cooperative is the largest archive and distributor of independent and avant-garde films in the world. Created by artists in 1961 as the distribution branch of the New American Cinema Group, the Coop has more than 5,000 films, videotapes, and DVDs in its collection.
