To celebrate the life and work of the singular artist and animation historian Robert Russett (1935-2015), guest curator Mark Toscano has assembled this nearly complete retrospective of Russett’s 16mm films.  This program will span his early, radical Pop hybrids of Sharits and Conner, through his fascinating and rigorous abstract perceptual explorations, to the haunting and ominous impressionistic rephotography works in which Russett explored his adopted homeland of Acadian Louisiana.

Curator in attendance!

The films in the program will span 1967-1981 or so, and include restored prints from the Academy Film Archive of Under the Juggernaut (1969), Neuron (1972), and Primary Stimulus (1977/80).
