Skip Blumberg: Culture Beat (micro-retrospective)

Wednesday, July 10, 2019 - 7:00 pm

Programmed by Casey Wei


One of the original camera journalist-cum-independent videomakers, Skip Blumberg’s practice is situated between discourses of art, journalism, activism, and guerilla filmmaking. He is a founding member of the Videofreex, a pioneering New York video collective for countercultural movements from 1969 to 1978. This “Culture Beat” program provides just a small sampling of Skip’s prolific output, from his "on-the-ground" participatory style to his travels around the world as an artist, producer, and correspondent. Join us for a Q&A following the program, when Video Out’s Casey Wei will speak with Skip via Skype about how his practice has evolved over the last fifty years.
