Today (April 30) I attended an excellent conference entitled “Curating the Moving Image” organized by the graduate students of the Film Dept. at Yale. Guests included curators from MoMA, MoMI, BAM, Anthology..etc. Following the final panel, Laura Mulvey (yes! Laura Mulvey!) delivered the Reni Celeste Memorial Lecture in the auditorium of Yale’s Humanities Center.
This has been a crazy month: Agnes Varda spoke to students in the Cinema Studies Dept. at NYU two weeks ago!
I will attempt to write these events up and post here as they each provided much valuable advice and insight for archivists, junior curators, and film scholars.
