Hippie Modernism at the Walker Art Center

31 Oct

If you happen to be in Minneapolis, MN in the next few months, check out the new show, Hippie Modernism, at The Walker Art Center.

From The Walker Art Center website:

“Loosely organized around Timothy Leary’s famous mantra, “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out,” the exhibition charts the evolution of the period, from pharmacological, technological, and spiritual means to expand consciousness and alter one’s perception of reality, to the foment of a publishing revolution that sought to create new networks of like-minded people and raise popular awareness to some of the era’s greatest social and political struggles, to new ways of refusing mainstream society in favor of ecological awareness, the democratization of tools and technologies, and a more communal survival.”

Spook Sport (1940)- Mary Ellen Bute

24 Oct

In the spirit of Halloween, this week’s post features spooks, ghosts and bats in Mary Ellen Bute’s experimental animated film from 1940. Mary Ellen Bute was a groundbreaking filmmaker in her own right, but her gender makes her contributions to early experimental cinema all the more powerful. Unfortunately, the you tube upload incorrectly labels Norman MacLaren as the director (the fabulous Mac Laren was indeed an animator on the film, but direction was all Ms. Bute’s). Just look at how awesome she was!
