Fragments from A Lover's Discourse

Fragments from A Lover’s Discourse

"As is easily seen in The Museum of Modern Art’s rather epic-sized show, the film and video work created by generations of [CalArts] students reflects an institution that has taken openness as a kind of religious doctrine, so that the casual viewer will notice the seeds of Pixar as well as the earliest gestures of West Coast video art." - Robert Koehler, CinemaScope

Highlights from The Museum of Modern Art’s Tomorrowland: CalArts in Moving Pictures

Drawing from the sweeping array of film, video and animation featured in MoMA’s blockbuster retrospective in New York earlier this year, this unique four-day program offers Los Angeles filmgoers a rich panorama of some of the most innovative and artistically daring work made at CalArts over the past 35 years. CalArts faculty and staff have teamed up with Tomorrowland curator Joshua Siegel to compile a series of highlights from the three-month-long MoMA survey—the most extensive ever devoted to an American film school.

The resulting program is a strikingly eclectic mix of rarely seen works. It includes thought-provoking features (Erik Saks’s Forevermore: Biography of a Leach Lord, Lin Li’ Three-Five People) and featurettes (Minda Martin’s a.k.a. Kathy, Travis Wilkerson’s An Injury to One); critically acclaimed shorts (James Mangold’s NY Shuffle, Q. Allan Brocka’s Rick and Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple in the World, Hyun Kyung Kim’s Toilet Pig), audacious experimental films (Betzy Bromberg’s Ciao Bella or Fuck Me Dead, Naomi Uman’s Leche, Danielle Ye’s Departure), groundbreaking early video art and (Post)Studio work (Sharon Greytak, Suzanne Lacy, Mark Osborne, David Oursier, Ilene Segalove, David Wilson); and off-the-hook animation: Stephen Hillenburg, Michael Patterson, Kathy Rose, Jen Sachs, Henry Selick, Maria Vasilkovsky, J.J. Villard, and the animators who went on to lead the creative team behind Pixar Animation Studios (Pete Docter; John Lasseter, Joe Ranft and Mark Walsh).

Organized and coordinated by Steve Anker and Bérénice Reynaud with Joshua Siegel, assistant curator, The Museum of Modern Art.
