Pat O’Neill: Views from Lookout Mountain

Pat O’Neill: Views from Lookout Mountain is the first gallery exhibition to provide a complete film retrospective in conjunction with a survey of the visual artworks by this important artist. It combines a range of media, including photographs and photographic composites, inkjet prints, film projection, film installations and drawings. Bringing to light the artist’s major works from the late 1960s to the present, the exhibition will span all three galleries at Cornerhouse. It will feature some of his 16mm and 35mm film in one of the centre’s cinemas, playing a continuous loop from midday every Tuesday and Saturday.O’Neill’s films enjoy a devoted following in the avant-garde film community, but with this exhibition, UK gallery audiences will be introduced to the work of an artist whose unique vision engages all the major aesthetic progressions of the post-war era, and whose techniques anticipated technological innovations before their time.
