Hour: 7 PM

On Friday 21 April 2017, Fondazione Prada’s Cinema will host a talk with Ira Schneider (New York,1939), one of the pioneers of video research across the 60’s and 70’s.
His experimental cinematographic production won him the inclusion in the New American Cinema Group; subsequently he moved on to video and television.
In 1969, he took part in mentre “TV as a Creative Medium”, the very first exhibition exploring the use of the TV screen as an artistic medium, whereas in 1976 he curated, along with Beryl Korot the book Video Art: an anthology.

The talk will be held in English.
