One of the most influential avant-garde film makers of his generation, Morgan Fisher began working in Los Angeles at around the same time as Jack Goldstein. Though very different artists, both often dealt with the omnipresence of Hollywood. Fisher’s films deconstruct cinema by taking the mechanisms of film’s illusions as their subject. He will talk about his use of stock film footage. His films Standard Gauge (1984) and Wilkinson Household Fire Alarm (1973) will then be screened.
Stuart Comer, Tate’s Curator of Film, will conduct a Q&A session. The lecture and screening coincides with a major exhibition by Morgan Fisher at Raven Row in London.
