Joyce Wieland Characteristics

Joyce Wieland: charming wit represent some of the great treasures of Canadian experimental film. The images and motifs which she explored in her 16 mm short films have important thematic and formal connections to her work as a painter, sculptor, collage-artist, quilt maker, and feature film director (THE FAR SHORE). Wieland's career includes a number of important artistic collaborations with New York City and Toronto-based colleagues (Michael Snow, Hollis Frampton, George Kuchar, Wendy Michener and Judy Steed to name just a few), but what truly distinguishes her filmmaking is the fact that she consistently pursued her own distinct artistic vision. She worked in New York from 1963-70.
