No Longer Showing.

As the first look by a US institution at this under-recognized, Swiss-born artist and filmmaker’s oeuvre, this show will feature a selection of Klaus Lutz’s 16mm film loops, as well as some of his meticulous work on paper and artist books. Shot almost entirely in the artist’s tiny East Village apartment with Lutz performing as his protagonist, the films— using animation, multiple exposures, and often projected onto large, white balloons, creating convex, circular images— depict quasi-mythological tales that, while reminiscent of Georges Méliès and the 1920s avant-garde, ultimately look to develop new visual sign systems for the future.

Curated by Matthew Lyons

Opening Reception: Thursday, October 30, 6pm-8pm

October 30–December 20
