Description:
This catalog for a mid-1970s traveling exhibition of American avant-garde films was one of the first critical histories on the subject ever published. It begins in 1943 with Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid’s Meshes of the Afternoon and ends with the structural and minimalist films of the early 1970s. The inclusion of filmmakers biographies and filmographies make it an even better resource for students of the avant-garde.
