Films by Rick Bahto

Rick Bahto is an artist currently living in Los Angeles. He works primarily with Super 8 and regular 8mm films, as well as performance-based multimedia projects. He is a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, where he studied with Janis Crystal Lipzin and Charles Boone, among others. His work has exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Los Angeles Filmforum, San Francisco Cinematheque, The 8 Fest, and Chicago Filmmakers among other venues, and has created several collaborative performance pieces with composer/performer Luciano Chessa. His work is  influenced by both structural filmmaking and the New York School, and frequently incorporates both indeterminate procedures alongside/within pre-determined forms. For this presentation, he will project a collection of Super 8 films, all previously unseen in New York. He will also present the first public realization of his open-ended performance work for Super 8 film and audio cassettes entitled Some Places for Mark So and Madison Brookshire, which will close the program and may last anywhere from between 5 and 45 minutes.
