Selected Solo Exhibitions

Lillian F. Schwartz: Selected Solo Exhibitions
2012 An Evening with Lillian Schwartz, Modern Mondays, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY”Tomorrow evening, the Museum of Modern Art
is presenting a retrospective of work by legendary computer animator
Lillian Schwartz. The 85-year-old Schwartz will be present at the
screening to introduce her work:
New York–based artist Lillian Schwartz (b. 1927) became a pioneer of
computer-generated art in the late 1960s while a resident at Bell
Laboratories, where she continued working as an artist, filmmaker, and
art historian for over three decades. She was among the first American
artists to employ computer language to create motion-graphics-based
film and video art. Schwartz joins us to introduce a selection of her
technically complex, finely executed investigations into visual
perception. The program includes 2-D/3-D films from the 1970s to the
present, such as Pixillation (1970), UFOs (1971), Enigma (1973),
Olympiad (1973), and the newly released Before, Before (2012).”Films by Lillian Schwartz, National Film Board of Canada, Ars Nova Arts, Toronto, CanadaThe Films of Lillian Schwartz, Melwood Screening Room, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA
