Spotlight on Lewis Klahr
Lewis Klahr is an internationally-acclaimed and Los Angeles–based experimental filmmaker whose work has been included in the Whitney Biennial, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Wexner Center for the Arts, and the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
Meticulously culling images, textures, and fleeting details from an array of mid-century ephemera—from superhero comic books to ladies’ magazine ads and from playing cards to telegrams—Klahr pieces together exhilarating and enigmatic collages imbued with hints of melancholy romance and noir-tinged (mis)adventure. Klahr’s first-ever screening at LACMA will include the Los Angeles premiere of his newest work, The Pettitfogger and rarities from his prolific oeuvre.
In addition, beginning this October, a selection of Klahr’s work will also be on view on the monitors of LACMA’s Stark Bar.
