Ken Jacobs, Seeking the Monkey King

This series, part of the exhibition Dreamlands, highlights a range of cinematic approaches from optical abstraction to science fiction. These films challenge the notion of cinema as a form, as artists project into the future, document the past, disrupt the canon, and explore the limits of our senses. Screenings will take place in the Whitney's third-floor Susan and John Hess Family Gallery and Theater, and at Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn. Visit whitney.org/Dreamlands for more information.
