Ernie Gehr: Recent Work
May 5 – 6
Laboring to push the form — as well as his own investigation into perception and the prospects for time-based media — veteran filmmaker Ernie Gehr returns to the National Gallery of Art to discuss his most recent work. Gehr’s richly negotiated pieces meld and offset concrete soundscapes with sometimes barely perceptible slivers of place. These collisions between identifiable spaces and conceptual realms activate forms that are unique to Gehr’s practice and career, now spanning over five decades.
