The event is over

Born in Toronto in 1926, Michael Snow is a visual artist, photographer and musician, and also one of the most important representatives of North American independent cinema. Wavelength (1967), Back and Forth (1969), La Région centrale (1971), Rameau’s Nephew (1974) – which figure in the collection of the National Museum of Modern Art – continue to be some of his most discussed works and among the most influential in the history of avant-garde film. Apart from his mono-screen films made to be projected in cinema theatres, Michael Snow has produced a large number of installations in which he reveals the structural components of film and plays with the phenomena of illusion and the critical deconstruction of film projection.
