Legendary Experimental & Documentary Filmmaker Abigail Child Receives Career Retrospective at NYC’s Anthology Film Archives March 24-28th
At times playful and at others intensely provocative, the cinema of Abigail Child has been a cornerstone of the American avant-garde film movement since the late 1970s. Poet, visual artist and filmmaker Abigail Child has absorbed the best of mentors like Jonas Mekas, experimental icons like Marie Menken, Len Lye & Arthur Lipsett, and has been a trailblazer for LGBTQIA+ artists alongside fellow game-changers like Barbara Hammer and Yvonne Rainer.
The work is emotionally probing, intellectually challenging, and visually arresting. Every image is a masterful flourish filled with power, and each sounds an alarm, a call to arms for each of us to march forward in our own personal journey.
A destroyer of boundaries and builder of bridges, the work traverses the finest experimental cinema and the very best of the documentary form.
These fantastic works have been lovingly curated in a long overdue career retrospective for Abigail Child, presented at New York’s Anthology Film Archives from March 24th to the 28th, 2023.
Tickets are currently on sale by visiting the Anthology Film Archives website at http://www.anthologyfilmarchives.org/series/55719.
