Fred Camper: Art Bio Contact
On October 6, at 7:30 PM, the Chicago Film Society will show my five early
16mm films (1967-69); I will attend to introduce them and take questions.
Two friends have made videos about my art, Dreams of Lost Wholeness
by Brian Hischier, and fred's unthreadings by Yoel Meranda. As a result,
I have placed for the first time works from my current project,
Weeks and Months, on this site, from the shooting Brian Hischier documented.
My book Seeking Brakhage, collecting most of my writing on
Stan Brakhage from 1966 to 2021,  received two excellent reviews
recently (linked to from my page). In conjunction with this publication,
I attended and introduced four screenings in New York between
January 14 and 16. On January 14, the Museum of the Moving
Image presented a program of Brakhage films I curated, and then
a program of my own early films. On Janaury 15, Anthology Film
Archives presented a different Brakhage program I curated
(scroll down to Brakhage), and then on Janaury 16 the same program
of my own early films as presented at MMI (scroll down to January 16).
I have a recent Artist Statement, my most comprehensive attempt yet
to articulate the intent and ideology underlying much of my art.
The 2012 and 2022 Sight & Sound Greatest Films Polls included my lists.
