Barbara Hammer presents “The Hammer Mix: Generations”

(Various Artists)

Tonight we celebrate the announcement of the winner of the 2018 Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant with a selection of short films made by women who have been inspired by Hammer’s career, including Peggy Ahwesh, Lynne Sachs, and Cauleen Smith, among others. Hammer writes, “I am honored to have inspired these genius filmmakers. When you are young and working hard you just think about getting the work out. Then to find years later that your films meant a whole lot to certain artists, it just takes your breath away.”

“The Hammer Mix: Generations” coincides with the announcement of the winner of the 2018 Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant, who will be recognized at the screening. The Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant is an annual grant awarded to self-identified lesbians for making visionary moving-image art. The $5,000 grant is supported directly by funds provided by Hammer’s estate and administered through Queer|Art by lesbians for lesbians, with a rotating panel of judges. Applications for the first year of the Barbara Hammer Lesbian Experimental Filmmaking Grant opened August 1, and will close October 1, 2018. This year’s judges include moving image archivist and curator Carmel Curtis, video artist Cecilia Dougherty, and video artist Ayanna U’Dongo.
