AEMI (Artists’ & Experimental Moving Image) presents a discussion at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios with Lewis Klahr, one of America’s most prolific avant-garde filmmakers. Lewis Klahr will participate in a public conversation with artist Orla McHardy. Prior to the discussion AEMI presents a screening at the Irish Film Institute of Klahr’s 90-minute, 12-episode feature Sixty Six.

In the vein of Peter Horvath, Winston Smith, or William Burroughs, Lewis Klahr can be considered among the great cut-up/collage artists of his generation. His latest work Sixty Six which premiered at MoMA in 2015 has been celebrated as a “milestone achievement”, the culmination of several decades of productive engagement with what NY Times calls a “cinematic archaeology of the American unconscious”.

AEMI (Artists' & Experimental Moving Image) is a creative platform dedicated to the support and exhibition of artists and experimental moving image.
