Revelations of the Everyday

Revelations of the Everyday: Films and Videos by Vincent Grenier

Jack H. Skirball Series

Vincent Grenier, a native of Québec City, Canada, has lived in New York City and Ithaca, New York, since the 1970s and over the past four decades has produced one of the most significant bodies of experimental films and videos of his generation. “My works directly confront the ideas of spatiality and temporality as a continuum and unsettle the notion of a universal human experience,” Grenier writes. “These films and videos move towards fracturing space and time in order to release how the everyday, and the specific, hold within them ineffable, untranslatable, revelations of light, color, form, and composition.” His work has been shown at The Museum of Modern Art, New York Film Festival, the Whitney Museum, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, and Media City Film Festival, Ontario. His films are included in the Art Gallery of Ontario, the National Gallery of Canada, The Donnell Library Center, and other institutions in Canada and the United States. Program includes Tabula Rasa, Here, Surface Tension #2, North Southernly, While Revolved, Armoire, Burning Bush, and others.
