Presented by Center for Visual Music. Introduced by Cindy Keefer, archivist and curator, Center for Visual Music.
Since 1947, Bay Area artist Jordan Belson has explored consciousness, transcendence, and light in an extraordinary body of abstract films that has been called "cosmic cinema." This program features rarely screened films including Caravan (1952), a new preservation print of Chakra (1972), and the Bay Area premiere of Epilogue (2005), a distillation of 60 years of visionary images synchronized to a symphonic tone poem by Rachmaninoff.
$5 general; free for SFMOMA members or with museum admission (requires a free ticket, which can be picked up in the Haas Atrium).
