The Shirley Clarke Collection – Collections

In 1958 the later Oscar awarded avant-garde filmmaker Shirley Clarke was commissioned to create 25 short films to be presented at the Brussels EXPO and that should document America as a “society in motion”. The result was a milestone in short-film history. The films were silent and non-linear montages, edited in Clarke’s “visual jazz” style, responding to the choreography, movement and rhythm inherent in the medium.
