The Double Exposure Series, part of Carnegie Museum of Art’s Time-Based Media Project is a series of screening events presenting contemporary perspectives on pioneers of the past. The series features artists, preservationists, curators, and scholars discussing the legacy of avant-garde film and video of the 1960s-80s, including works in Carnegie Museum of Art’s permanent collection and beyond. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Time-Based Media Project is a multifaceted initiative focused on stewarding the museum’s film, video, audio, and computer-based artworks into the future, as well as catalyzing research and discussion in the field.
