Lewis Klahr is an internationally-acclaimed and Los Angeles–based experimental filmmaker whose work has been included in the Whitney Biennial, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Wexner Center for the Arts, and the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
The Cornell Cinema is presenting An Evening with College Artist/Animator Lewis Klahr, featuring a selection of his recent short films. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art writes: "Meticulously culling images, textures, and fleeting details from an array of mid-century ephemera - from superhero comic books to ladies' magazine ads and from playing cards to telegrams - Klahr pieces together exhilarating and enigmatic collages imbued with hints of melancholy, romance and noir-tinged (mis)adventure."
