Gunvor Nelson Retrospective at MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art in New York presents an exhibition of work by Swedish film and video pioneer Gunvor Nelson on October 20-23.

The retrospective spans four decades and offers a rare opportunity to experience the accumulated impact of Nelson's artistic vision. Gunvor Nelson's poetically expansive life's work was created in both San Francisco, her home and workplace for over thirty years, and her native Sweden, where she resettled in the mid-1990s.

Following her debut in 1966 with the film "Schmeerguntz", Gunvor Nelson became a key figure in the avant-garde film movement that emerged in California in the 1960s. She has consistently, often courageously, privileged her subjective gaze and individual experience. Nelson relentlessly refuses predictability (and succeeds) in her search for a true relation between project and form.
