Canyon Cinema Salon: Changing the Shape of Film an evening with Barbara Hammer
7:30 pm
Kanbar Forum Exploratorium Pier 15

Join us for an evening of transmuted cinema, where images break through the traditional rectangular screen and emerge in unexpected and amorphous shapes. Working consistently since the late 1960's, Barbara Hammer's career is one marked by experimentation, intellectual rigor, and a commitment to testing boundaries. In tonight's program, Hammer will present two works of expanded cinema that reconsider exactly where film images belong. With Changing the Shape of Film, a 12 foot weather balloon becomes the screen for Hammer's own films, forcing the audience to find new perspectives - and seating arrangements. In Available Space a 360 degree projection table is employed to use the actual architecture of the space as the screen - and to force the viewer to be in continuous physical motion to view the work.

Presented in conjunction with Canyon Cinema 50, this program is the first in a year long series of programming in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Canyon Cinema's incorporation. In the tradition of Canyon's monthly Canyon Cinema Salon series, Hammer's performances will be followed by an intimate conversation.
