The Center seeks to document and preserve the legacy of experimental film and media arts. In so doing, our aim is to establish a national and international locus for study, research, exhibition, discussion, residencies and teaching. As part of this enterprise, the Center arranges specific programming to promote and explore the legacies of leading artists as well as advance academic and artistic research and exhibition/publication of contemporary artists and scholars. This programming includes an annual thematic symposia, film screenings, exhibitions, and other activities. We also endeavor to create digital humanities projects surrounding these materials that feature significant artists and their work, contextualized by scholarly essays, images, audio recordings, and other materials. Moreover, it is our belief that these collections will serve as the basis for the creative works of future generations of experimental artists.
