Robert Breer, one of Americas foremost filmmakers for more than 50 years, pays a rare visit to Los Angeles to attend a multi-venue celebration of his work. A close colleague of Rauschenberg, Oldenburg and many other seminal artists of the 50s and 60s, Breer brought a comparably imaginative and rigorous appreciation for collage and pure form to the art of cinema. Throughout a body of more than 40 animated—and in ways anti-animated films—Breer celebrates cinema as a unique way of seeing, and the act of drawing as an endlessly expressive and unpredictable personal gesture. Tonight is the third part of a three-part retrospective organized by Steve Anker, featuring a selection of the artists early work (1952-1964), including portraits and collaborations with Jean Tinguely, Claes Oldenberg and other avant-garde figures of the 50s and early 60s, as well as his first major animated and pixilated short films.
