This is a richly illustrated and engaging look at the unique work of one of the world's leading experimental filmmakers and multimedia artists. Michael Snow is considered by peers and critics alike to be one of the world's leading experimental filmmakers and a unique multidisciplinary artist. His wide-ranging oeuvre explores the possibilities inherent in different mediums and genres, from film and video to painting, sculpture, photography, writing, and even music. This richly illustrated volume documents an exceptional retrospective exhibition, conceived jointly by Canada's Galerie de l'UQAM (Universite du Quebec a Montreal) and French art institution Le Fresnoy, that highlights recurrent aspects of Snow's artistic approach - the window motif as framing device, the use of opposites (inside/outside, front/back), the reflection on space and time - and presents a vigorous and insightful reappraisal of his work from the 1960s to today.
