The exhibition celebrates the extraordinary life and work of Jonas Mekas, one of the pioneer of avant-garde and independent cinema. This is the first retrospective of Mekas’s career that has ever been held in Asia.

Curated by Eunhee Kim and Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, the retrospective features a vast and diverse selection of artworks that comprehensively cover the sixty-year career of the Lithuanian-born filmmaker and poet, the exhibition looks at Mekas’s practice as an exercise of resistance to human brutality, as a pursuit of happiness that loudly resonates in these uncertain times.
