Expanding the Frame 2011: Cinema on Stage

“With this film, you have to be there. It’s almost a performance or dance piece. Watching something about utopia, and doing it all together with a lot of people in the same room, creates an energy. It’s inspiring. . . . The more I thought of it, the more I realized utopia was a collective experience.”—Sam Green on Utopia in Four Movements

The Walker’s Expanding the Frame series not only highlights changes in ways that artists are working with film, but also shows how the medium itself is being reframed in the 21st century. The works presented bring together artists who are literally going beyond the cinema’s rectangular projection of light to incorporate live performance into their film-based work.
