Oskar Fischinger: Space Light Art—A Film Environment, at The Whitney Museum
In which the Whitney recreates one of the first pieces of film-as-visual art, a three-screen projection first performed in 1926. Fischinger, who was active in the Weimar-era avant-garde, incorporated color projections and abstract film; he was among the first generation of artists to treat celluloid as a moving canvas, and cinema as a synthesis of color, movement, light and time.
