Summary

Remembering Cinema focuses on artists' filmmaking exhibited in gallery spaces since 1990; or "gallery films". It argues that although they have chosen a different space for experiment, gallery films should not be expelled from film theory's critical frame, since they explore and expand our understanding of what cinema has been, is now and could be. Therefore, while the auditorium has increasingly been seen as the space for the death of cinema, in the art gallery the cinematic is revived, renewed and remembered. Through a comprehensive assemblage, discussion and analysis of the proliferating field, this book is the first to fully comprehend gallery films' unique explorations of narrative, spectatorship, time, space, film history and identity. In investigating the gallery as the preferred space for experiment in contemporary cinema, Remembering Cinema also questions the actual and theoretical spaces within which cinema practice and cinema studies have circulated and been constructed.
