SFAI Visiting Artist Lecture: James Benning

SEE EVENT DETAILS
A pivotal figure in experimental filmmaking for over 40 years, James Benning’s

primary subject is the expansive and complex American landscape. His most recent

work centers around two cabins that he replicated on his property in the Sierra

foothills: Henry David Thoreau’s shelter from Walden Pond and Ted Kaczynski’s

plywood shack—iconic American structures that seemingly represent utopian

and dystopian poles. The resulting film Two Cabins (2011) layers perspectives and

articulates intoxicating connections between the two structures.
