Fundació Joan Miró presents “Insomnia”, an exhibition about film as a material for contemporary art. Curated by Neus Miró, the show brings together several international artists who have explored film in the period from the sixties to the present.
The selected artists take an experimental approach to working with the properties of film, unfettered by the demands of the film industry. The works in the exhibition modify the conventions of cinema from three different perspectives: by analysing the convergence of photography and cinema, modifying traditional forms of projection and creating new kinds of viewing spaces, and renewing the models of film narrative.
The catalogue includes essais by outstanding contributors, and reproductions of works by Hollis Frampton, Stan VanDerBeek, Dan Graham, Ben Rivers and Stan Douglas, as well as pieces by Lis Rhodes and Peter Kubelka.
