16mm Films by Leighton pierce
United States | 1995-98 | Leighton Pierce
Leighton Pierce, chair of the Film & Video Department at NYC’s Pratt Institute, is one of America’s major avant-garde filmmakers. For over 30 years, he has explored memory and perception in a series of stunningly shot, impressionistic short films and videos that exploit cinematic space and time and expand the interplay between sound and image. His work has been exhibited at major museums and festivals (MoMA, the Whitney Biennial, Sundance, Ann Arbor, San Francisco, London, Rotterdam, et al.), and he has received fellowships from both the Rockefeller and Guggenheim Foundations. Tonight Pierce will appear in person to present and discuss two of his most acclaimed 16mm works: Glass (1998), a “not-so-still life in the backyard with children, water, fire, and a few other basic elements” (Pierce), and 50 Feet of String (1995), a 12-part movie about “the slow and subtle repeated rhythms of daily life.”
Special thanks to Linda Bourassa, Hiram College. Leighton Pierce will present a program of recent digital video work at the Cleveland Museum of Art on Wed., Oct. 24, at 7 pm.
