Chronicling artists' fascination with filmmaking from the early twentieth century to now, Artists' Film presents an alternative history of the moving image. From early pioneers such as Fernand Léger, Dziga Vertov and Stefan and Franciszka Themerson, to key contemporary artists including Steve McQueen, Tacita Dean and Francis Alÿs, leading authority and film expert David Curtis offers a vivid account of the numerous individuals who have been inspired by the cinematic medium. Featuring over 400 international moving-image makers and drawing on examples from across the arts, including experimental film, video, installation and multimedia, this generously illustrated account offers an incomparable introduction to the increasingly popular, continually evolving genre of the artist's film. -- Back cover.
