Pittsburgh-based filmmaker, composer, and musicologist Victor Grauer’s pioneering structural and camera-less style films are rich with textures, vibrant colors and a unique and hypnotic visual rhythm.

Join CMOA and Grauer as he presents two early works "Voices"(1967, 16mm) a stunning camera-less film with brilliant colors that explode from the darkened screen, and "Archangel" (1966, 16mm) a hypnotic ‘flicker’ film assembled of solid frames of color that has been favorably compared to the now-canonical work of Paul Sharits and Tony Conrad. Along with "Book of the Year" 3000 (1974/2012, video), a film version of his concrete poem and soundpiece. Following the screening, Grauer discusses his process and work with local writer and filmmaker Brett Kashmere.

The Double Exposure Series, part of Carnegie Museum of Art's Time-Based Media Project [], is a series of screening events presenting contemporary perspectives on pioneers of the past. The series features artists, preservationists, curators, and scholars discussing the legacy of avant-garde film and video of the 1960s-80s, including works in CMOA's permanent collection and beyond. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Time-Based Media Project is a multifaceted initiative focused on stewarding the museum’s film, video, audio, and computer-based artworks into the future, as well as catalyzing research and discussion in the field.
