Donna Cameron's "Persistence
of Vision" is a wonderful, unique exhibition, The notebook sketches and the rough raw small paper sequential abstractions
stood out for me. Of the films, I especially enjoyed Projector and Peterborough Forest."
-John Canemaker, Oscar-winning Filmmaker, Author, and Professor of Film
The Kimmel Windows Gallery's 13-window show, featuring
works by international artist Donna Cameron, is curated by Pamela Jean Tinnen and wraps around the Washington Square landmark
Kimmel Center building at 3rd Street and LaGuardia Place.
As part of this show, Cinematic Paper Emulsion highlights are playing in a continuous
loop in the Kimmel Center Windows Gallery! All film works are distributed by The Museum of Modern
Art Circulating Film Library. The paper emulsion cinema is the product of Donna
Cameron's creative process which the show celebrates by including her paintings, multimedia art, sculpture, archival film
materials and studio tools.
"Unique and not to be missed!"
"Positively not 4th Street - because it's 3rd Street!"
“Donna Cameron is a most significant presence in international
non-narrative cinema, in poetic meditative cinema, in American avant-garde cinema
, in New York independent cinema, and a pioneer in camera less and expanded cinema.”
Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator Emeritus, Dept. of Film & Media, Museum of Modern Art
