Steve Seid, former curator at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, talks about the National Center for Experiments in Television (1967–1975). In one lost-and-found work from the center, Joanne Kyger’s Descartes, he senses that “video itself is generating consciousness.”
Organized by The Editors
The Stein family's Saturday salons in their Paris apartments were the crucible of avant-garde art and writing of the period. In keeping with the spirit of those informal gatherings, our guests — artists, writers, filmmakers, performers, and others — entertained us with their personal recollections of Bay Area avant-garde histories. Presented in conjunction with The Steins Collect, and co-organized with Margaret Tedesco.
