Barbara Hammer (born 1939) is a pivotal figure in American experimental film. An acclaimed pioneer of queer cinema, her prolific output includes the earliest avant-garde films that openly address lesbian life and sexuality. Her work remains of fundamental importance for a new generation of artists exploring new voices and new modes of experimenting with the moving image.
This major survey of Hammer’s work will be launched with the premiere of her new short film, Maya Deren’s Sink (2011), a tribute to Hammer’s longstanding fascination with Deren.
