A Collected Gaze
Australian Handmade Experimental Film 1967-2018

February 6 and 7, 2019

Australian experimental cinema contains many histories. One persistent storyline involves the use of the film medium as a tool to enlarge and enhance the viewer's perception. Another considers the recurrence of co-operative forms in an art practice marked by collectivism and collaboration. Yet another story relays artists' responses to the environment as a subject, protagonist and idea. These threads combine in the three programs of "A Collected Gaze".
