Join Len Lye Curator Paul Brobbel for a tour of this new exhibition exploring modern and contemporary experimental cinema.

From his vibrant colour experiments of the 1930s through to his ‘scratch film’ experiments in the 1950s, the work of Len Lye leads a survey of modern and contemporary experimental cinema framed around his 1963 challenge: ‘Is Film Art?’.

This exhibition demonstrates the innovations of filmmakers working beyond the limits of conventional filmmaking, from the modern masterpieces of Lye and Oskar Fischinger to the contemporary work of Steve Cossman and Jodie Mack.
