  • Still Dreaming: Remembering Phil Solomon

    Phil Solomon (January 3, 1954—April 20, 2019) was among the great avant-garde filmmakers of this era. Solomon’s more than twenty films and digital pieces create an interior universe that has rarely, if ever, been surpassed in any medium for its intimacy, evocation of personal sensibility, expressive dream-like sounds and images, and for its sublime—and terrifying—sense of ambiguity between the recognizable world and its dissolution.

  • Dream Dance: The Art of Ed Emshwiller

    Dream Dance: The Art of Ed Emshwiller is the first major monographic exhibition of the artist's groundbreaking work in film, video, and visual art. With an immensely diverse body of creative work, Ed Emshwiller (1925-90) is perhaps one of the most significant yet under-recognized artists of the latter half of the 20th century. Emshwiller's career spanned abstract expressionist painting, commercial illustration, film, video and computer art, and collaborations with dancers, choreographers, and composers.
