MILLENNIUM FILM JOURNAL profiles Performa 13's Man with a Projector in its current issue, No. 59, calling it "a brilliant and necessary addition to Performa 13."
At the intersection of visual art, performance, and cinema, Man with a Projector presented a rare chance to see important historic works and new film and video performances by Malcolm Le Grice and Guy Sherwin, two artists associated with The London Film Makers’ Co-operative. The Co-op—a group of British experimental filmmakers active in the 1960s and '70s—radically transformed the dialogue around the cinematic experience. In an atmosphere of dynamic debate and daring experimentation, the group challenged the illusionistic tradition of cinema and insisted on more active, participatory experiences, focusing their attention on film projection as a live event, and often employing multiple screen projections, live filmmaking, performances, and installations.
