The lenses of time

Temporal Contradictions

San Francisco Art Institute

“An overriding theme of films made during the ’70s was how to subjectivize the world, how to transform the camera’s capacity as a recording device into a vehicle for self-expression. Tonight’s program explores the ways this impulse manifested itself, from Peter Gidal’s material-driven Condition of Illusion to Richard Levine’s impressionistic In the Eye of a Child, along with films by Michael Mideke, Barbara Lattanzi, and Jim Jennings”.–D.G.
