Cinema of Sensations: The Never-Ending Screen of Val del Omar
Cinema of Sensations: The Never-Ending Screen of Val del Omar presents the work of Spanish mid-20th-century artist, filmmaker, and inventor José Val del Omar (1904–1982) at the Museum of Moving Image in New York. The show is the first major U.S. exhibition devoted to the artist’s multisensory work and runs until October 1, 2023.
Disrupting the conventional relationship between the viewer and the screen, the works in this exhibition foreground historical and contemporary experimental technologies, creating aesthetically rich environments that engage the body and mind. Cinema of Sensations is organized by guest curator Almudena Escobar López with curatorial advisor and Director of the Val del Omar Archive Piluca Baquero, and Gonzalo Sáenz de Buruaga, President of the Val del Omar Archive as consultant.
