Summary
Drawing on traditions of 19th-century landscape painting and still photography, Hutton's contemplative, meticulously composed films unfold as a series of tableaux separated by black leader. His work, primarily minimalist, silent portraits of cities and landscapes, has been shown at important festivals and in major museums across Europe and the United States including the Museum of Modern Art and five Whitney Biennials. He has received the Dutch Film Critics Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Rockefeller Foundation. He has taught at Hampshire College, Harvard University, SUNY Purchase, and has been a Professor of Film at Bard College since 1984. Peter Hutton appeared on Screening Room in March 1977 to screen and discuss excerpts from the films July '71 in San Francisco"¦, Images of Asian Music, Florence, New York Near Sleep for Saskia, and footage from New York Portrait: Chapter One. About the Screening Room series: In the early 1970s a group of idealistic artists, lawyers, doctors and teachers saw an opportunity to change commercial television in Boston and the surrounding area. It would require years of litigation up to and including the Supreme Court, but the case was won and the Channel 5 license was given to WCVB-TV. Screening Room was one of several programs offered in an effort to provide alternative television viewing. The idea behind Screening Room was to give independent filmmakers an opportunity to discuss their work and show it to a large urban audience. Nearly 100 ninety-minute programs were produced and aired between 1973 and 1980. Screening Room was developed and hosted by filmmaker Robert Gardner, who at the time, was Director of Harvard's Visual Arts Center and Chairman of its Visual and Environmental Studies Department. His own films include Dead Birds (1964), and Forest of Bliss (1986).
