Email megan.coleman@thehowe.org for a Zoom invite.  

In 2001, Robert Haller curated the film series Galaxy: Avant-garde Film-Makers Look Across Space and Time. One of the artists Haller promoted was the painter-sculptor-filmmaker Jim Davis (1901-1974), whose fantastic movie images of shifting light reflections evoke a meditative spiritualism also found in other films on the program. Haller collaborated with Chodorov and Re:Voir Video on the distribution of films preserved by Haller and books by Haller on the films of Davis and others, and in the production of photography books of Haller’s photographs, Across Time: Nudes and Standing Stones (2013) and Forty Photographs from Avant-Garde Film (2014).

“Where do we come from? What is our future? What is our relation to nature?” —Robert Haller
