The Double Negative Collective, a dedicated group of Montréal-based
filmmakers and curators of cinema, in collaboration with the
Cinémathèque québécoise and the National Film Board of Canada, invite
curator Brett Kashmere to present a film retrospective 0f Canadian
filmmaker Arthur Lipsett.  The exhibition takes place at the
Cinémathèque québécoise on June 4th, 5th and 6th.  Eric Gaucher’s
documentary on Arthur Lipsett screens on June 12th at 7pm.

Propelled to international attention through an Oscar nomination at the
age of 25, the legendary National Film Board artist Arthur Lipsett
remains an anomaly within avant-garde film histories. Uneasily
oscillating between a personal, artisanal tradition and the NFB’s
institutional mandate “to interpret Canada for Canadians,” he was a
popular experimental filmmaker whose eccentric, satirical collage films
were renowned around the world. Lipsett’s films were admired by diverse
film patriarchs such as Stanley Kubrick, Stan Brakhage, and George
Lucas.  The exhibition Arthur Lipsett: About Time presents an overdue
retrospective of Lipsett’s short but influential career, re-assembling
his dazzling collage work alongside correlative Canadian media artists
from the past half-century.

Brett Kashmere is a filmmaker, curator, and Visiting Assistant
Professor of Cinema Studies at Oberlin College in Ohio, USA.  Kashmere
has organized programs for the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art
Strasbourg, Light Cone, Cinémathèque québécoise, Eyebeam Center for Art
and Technology, Cinema Project, Vtape, and Cinematheque Ontario.
