Frank Gillette Lecture

Details

Guest: Frank Gillette

January 23, 2017 / 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Information

Merging a rich visual sensibility with an almost scientific engagement with taxonomy and ecological systems, Frank Gillette is a video pioneer whose multi-channel installations and tapes focus on empirical observations of natural phenomena. An early theorist of video’s formal and aesthetic parameters, in 1969 he was a founding member and president of the influential video collective Raindance.

With influences ranging from cybernetics to painting, Gillette was an innovator of the multi-channel installation form, experimenting with image feedback, time-delay and closed-circuit systems. His seminal installation Wipe Cycle (1969), was included in the landmark 1969 exhibition TV As A Creative Medium at the Howard Wise Gallery in New York. His most recent 4-channel installation was exhibited at the SVA Galleries in 2013. Gillette’s current work regards computer-generated imagery and lens-less photography. His website is www.frankgillette.com.

Mr. Gillette will talk about the intersections between technology, politics, culture and the natural world.
