Gregory Halpern: April

January 4–February 25, 2024, Multipurpose Hall

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Gregory Halpern: 19 winters / 7 springs in the Project Gallery, the George Eastman Museum is premiering the short experimental film April (2023, 16mm transferred to HD digital video).

A collaboration between Gregory Halpern (American, b. 1977) and filmmaker Joppe Rog (Dutch, b. 1987), the film complements Halpern’s two-decade photographic study of the idea of Buffalo, New York. This non-narrative film offers a poetic, dreamlike exploration of the city, turning around and tracking a series of its inhabitants—animal and human—across the cycles of seasons and stages of life.

Sound design by Trevor Parlo Clement with Gregory Halpern; guitar by Pat Bender Breeze.
