It’s an Interlace: Five Videos by Barbara Hammer


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Introduced by Karl McCool, Electronic Arts Intermix

“From her first experiment with the Sony Portapak (in conjunction with media artist Max Almy) to the multi-layered autobiographical exercise that helped her through chemotherapy, pioneering lesbian feminist filmmaker Barbara Hammer has expanded her visual vocabulary beyond her extensive work with celluloid to actively employ the immediacy of video production for over 40 years. Haptics, lesbian sensuality, playfulness, collaboration, and illness, all thematically present throughout her career, are encapsulated here in a brief overview of Hammer’s analog and digital output.”—KJ Relth and Mark Toscano
