Filmforum presents Bright Ideas: Conceptual Art Films
Sunday April 22, 2012, 7:30 pm
Los Angeles Filmforum presents
Bright Ideas: Conceptual Art Film
Alternative Projections: Experimental Film in Los Angeles, Screening 23

Los Angeles was one of the centers of Conceptual Art production, as reflected by multiple Pacific Standard Time exhibitions.  Where sculptural and installation manifestations of Conceptual Art are more widely known, film and video also served as media for these sorts of explorations  works in which the concept preceded the work, and for which one could theoretically conceive the work with the rules themselves.  

The program includes works by artists more know for working in other media, such as John Baldessari, Jack Goldstein, and David Wilson, and for those working in film, such as Thom Andersen, Morgan Fisher, Roberta Friedman, Grahame Weinbren, and Susan Rosenfeld.

At the Spielberg Theatre at the Egyptian, 6712 Hollywood Blvd.
