"Works of art... teach, move and delight."

Circles of Confusion, a mini-retrospective of the work of Hollis Frampton presented by Los Angeles Filmforum and Khastoo Gallery in conjunction with Art Los Angeles Contemporary at the Pacific Design Center, will screen from January 21-February 7. A full schedule is available here.

After the screenings, many guest speakers--including David James, Erika Vogt and Yvonne Rainer--will consider the impact of Frampton's films as well as his writing. I will participate in one such discussion at the Pacific Design Center on Saturday, January 30 at 2:00 pm.

Frampton's rich film work is as relevant now as ever. The problems he considers and attempts to solve in his films have not left us. In this audio recording, Frampton discusses cinema with Ken Jacobs and students at what was then known as the State University of New York at Binghamton.

"I seek whatever... feeling you can intensely construe for yourselves."

Part 2 of the recording can be found here.
