CAMBRIDGE, MA.- The Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts at Harvard University presents Ernie Gehr: Picture Taking on view in the Sert Gallery from February 14 through April 1, 2012.

This is the second exhibition in a newly created space for viewing moving image works located on the third floor of the Carpenter Center. Programming will run on three monitors mounted on the exterior wall of the Sert Gallery.

"PICTURE TAKING is part of an ongoing cycle of new works on New York City that began with SURVEILLANCE, a 4-channel installation exhibited in Madison Square Park in 2010, opening in late March at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art in Washington DC, as part of their permanent collection (Watch This! New Directions in the Art of the Moving Image). PICTURE TAKING is focused on "verticality" and urban sightseeing as well as on some of the pictorial possibilities of the HD digital format.”

A luminary member of the post-Brakhage generation of American avant-garde filmmakers, Gehr began to work with film in 1967, and with digital media in 2000. He is a recipient of a Stan Brakhage Vision Award (Denver International Film Festival 2009), a Princeton University Humanities Fellowship, (2007), and a Maya Deren Award (American Film Institute, 1990). A recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Gehr has also received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York Arts Foundation, California Council on the Art, as well as commissions for standard single single-screen work (Museum of Modern Art, 2000; Vienna International Film Festival, 2003), and digital installations (Museum of Modern Art, 2002, 2007/08; Madison Square Park Conservancy, NY, 2010). Retrospectives of his work were presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art; Arsenal, Berlin; Centre Pompidou, Paris; San Francisco Cinematheque; International Film Festival Rotterdam; Pesaro International Film Festival; and at the American Museum of the Moving Image in New York. Gehr has taught at various institutions across the country, including SUNY Binghamton, SUNY Buffalo, Bard College, University of Colorado at Boulder, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of California, Berkeley, and the San Francisco Art Institute.
