Screening Real. Conner Lockhart Warhol at the Kunsthaus Graz is the symmetrical twin of the exhibition Warhol Wool Newman. Painting Real. It features one of the most high-profile younger
names in the American art film world, Sharon Lockhart. Her work is contrasted with the films of Bruce Conner and Andy Warhol, whose works were crucial in revolutionizing the way art handles the media.


Taking Sharon Lockhart’s works as its starting point, Screening Real embarks on a quest for
possible definitions of reality, looking back over half a century where attempts of this kind were unusual, even in an avantgarde context. Californian artist Bruce Conner, a key figure of New American Cinema, saw the films he screened in exhibitions as an extension of art space, while Pop Art protagonist Andy Warhol used many of his film works in an actionist or performance context as well.


With the work of these three artists, the exhibition provides a casebook study of the development of media spaces, highlighting the spectacular development of American culture and its running commentary – explicit as well as implicit – on an unsettled age of great political change.
