Film Curation lecture at University of Amsterdam

Posted on January 26, 2010

By Jennifer Lyon Bell

Because of her Curation work in a very specific field of erotic film curation (including sexual documentary, explicit art videos, and alternative pornography), Jennifer has been invited to present at the new "Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image" program at the UvA.

Jennifer is pleased to be invited to be a guest speaker for the University of Amsterdam’s M.A. program ‘Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image’ on February 4, 2010.

 

Jennifer will be speaking about her experiences curating erotic and sexually explicit film for museums, art exhibitions, and film festivals, with special attention to her work as Co-Curator for the Museum of Sex/NY’s long-running exhibition ‘Stags, Smokers, and Blue Movies: The Origins of American Pornographic Film.’

 

She’s also been ask to reflect on how she became involved erotic filmmaking and curation, and to give her thoughts about the importance of finding a personally satisfying specialty –whether philosophical, thematic, or content-based — in developing a unique curatorial approach.
