Published fifty years ago, Gene Youngblood’s Expanded Cinema was a landmark account of early media arts in the US, written by a self-described “twenty-six-year-old former crime reporter with only a high school education.” With an introduction by R. Buckminster Fuller, the book offered an in-depth account of artists working with light shows, immersive projection, computer-generated imagery, and television, and addressed topics from sexuality to political revolution. To mark its fiftieth-anniversary re-release by Fordham University Press, Rhizome will host an online screening and a conversation about Expanded Cinema and its legacy, featuring Youngblood.
Note: This event will take place entirely online. RSVP to [email protected] to receive the link to the online screening.
This program is part of Rhizome’s Info-Wars research thread, supported by Seth Stolbun and the Stolbun Collection.Buy tickets/get more info now
