Opening Reception for ‘Nature is a Discipline’ with James Benning and Peter Hutton


On Saturday, January 24th, the Miguel Abreu Gallery will be hosting an opening reception for their new exhibition Nature is a Discipline online . The exhibition, curated by Ed Halter, includes new and recent work from acclaimed landscape filmmakers James Benning and Peter Hutton:

[su_quote cite=”Press release” url=””]Internationally recognized as two of the most accomplished American filmmakers of their generation, Benning and Hutton have been making motion pictures since the early 1970s; up until just the past few years, both have primarily worked in 16mm. The two men have related interests in documenting our modern relationship to landscapes, both natural and manmade, but do so with distinct approaches and sensibilities that have evolved over the decades. Recently, they have each responded to the increased difficulties of working in small-gauge celluloid by turning to new technologies. Since 2009, Benning has abandoned film to create new moving-image work exclusively using video, ranging from high-definition cinematography to appropriated YouTube clips, while Hutton has begun transferring work produced on 16mm to digital formats for screening.

Three of these recent installations: Hutton’s prometrium 200 ovuli costo Order online Purchase At Sea and Three Landscapes and Benning’s Tulare Road, have never been shown in New York. Both Benning and Hutton will be present for Saturday’s reception and the exhibition will run through March, 5th.  For more information, please visit the gallery’s website:
