Posted October 28, 2004; 09:16 p.m.
A two-day conference about Hollis Frampton, a filmmaker and photographer known for his witty insights into the cultural landscape, will take place Friday and Saturday, Nov. 5-6, at 185 Nassau St.
"Gloria! The Legacy of Hollis Frampton" will explore Frampton's many modes of artistic expression. Though best known as a filmmaker, Frampton, who lived from 1936 to 1984, left his mark on the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s in photography, film, art historical theory and the emerging digital arts. Scholars will present papers about Frampton's work in the various fields, and participants will view his films "Less," "Hapax Legomena" and "Gloria!"
The conference, which was organized by Princeton visual arts faculty members Su Friedrich , Keith Sanborn and P. Adams Sitney , is sponsored by the David Gardner '69 Magic Project and the Amie Knox '77 Fund, as well as several academic departments and committees.
