Speaking on this panel on Tuesday night. Very interesting topic & something I have not spoken about for awhile. And the last Aperture issue looks relevant and quite interesting as well.

At the intersection of visual art, performance, and cinema, Man with a Projector presents a rare chance to see important historic works and new film and video performances by Malcolm Le Grice and Guy Sherwin, two artists associated with The London Film Makers’ Co-operative. The Co-op - a group of British experimental filmmakers active in the 1960s and 70s–radically transformed the dialogue around the cinematic experience. In an atmosphere of dynamic debate and daring experimentation, the group challenged the illusionistic tradition of cinema and insisted on more active, participatory experiences, focusing their attention on film projection as a live event, and often employing multiple screen projections, live filmmaking, performances, and installations. For Man with a Projector, Malcolm Le Grice will collaborate with musician Keith Rowe, while Guy Sherwin will present a work conceived in tandem with artist Lynn Loo.
