Video: Studio visit with Lewis Klahr

Mon, Apr 19, 2010

Filmmaker Lewis Klahr “re-animates” images from mid-twentieth-century advertisements, comic books, and other ephemeral talismans of American commerce and popular culture to produce submerged narratives about the emotional and dream lives of his memory-haunted characters. Chris Stults, from our Film/Video department visited his Los Angeles studio to discuss his practice and see him working on his film Wednesday Morning Two A.M. (which went on to win a Tiger Award for Short Film at the 2010 International Film Festival Rotterdam). As a culmination to his 2009-2010 Residency Award in Media Arts,  the Wexner Center will be featuring a month-long retrospective of Klahr's career (along with classic films by Joseph von Sternberg, Andy Warhol, Jacques Tourneur, and others that have an important influence on Klahr's work) throughout the month of May.
