Art and Film since 1945
Hall of Mirrors Exhibition
Organized by Kerry Brougher, "Hall of Mirrors: Art and Film Since 1945" was the only museum exhibition chosen for the International Motion Picture Centennial celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the birth of cinema. The exhibition explores the complex and profound relationship between cinema and other visual arts. It examined how art has shifted toward film, how film has been influenced by art, and how the two have fused into new forms of artistic expression
