Video Art at the San Francisco Airport Museum

The San Francisco Airport Museum’s Video Arts program provides visibility to a range of contemporary artists and filmmakers who are at the leading edge of their craft. From short-form documentaries and narratives, to experimental films and all forms of animation, Video Arts presents the thought-provoking, innovative work of today’s filmmakers. This gallery is located pre-security on the departures level of International Terminal with daily operating hours of 5 a.m. to midnight. SFO Museum reviews exhibition proposals from artists and filmmakers on a rolling basis. Video Arts is currently programming films that are 10 minutes or less in duration and schedules each film for a four-week presentation. Three films now on view are:
“The Seed in the Sky.” Milwaukee-based filmmaker Dave Kiehl employs traditional cut-out animation and watercolor painting with digital applications in this imaginative short in which a lumbering aircraft mechanically produces the creatures of an idyllic world below.
Celluloid (An American in Paris — 1951). Artist and filmmaker Marco Brambilla pays tribute to the golden age of cinema in his reworking of the well-known scene of Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron during the musical finale of the 1951 film, “An American in Paris.”
“Nix + Gerber: The Drawing Room.” Filmmakers Robert Hall and Nol Honig profile artists Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber in this compelling short that explores the partnership and the creative process behind the duo’s remarkably detailed, post-apocalyptic dioramas.
