Robert Breer

Avant-garde multimedia artist Robert Breer was born in 1926 in Detroit, Michigan. Breer studied painting at Stanford University and after moving to Paris in 1949, he began to explore hand-drawn animation. Using stop-motion techniques and 4 x 6 index cards as his signature medium, Breer pioneered the revived interest in experimental animation and attracted international acclaim. His work, which incorporates both geometric abstractions and mundane images from daily life, explores color, form, rhythm, and motion with sharp wit and humor.

Breer's career includes solo exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Musée d'art moderne national in Paris; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. His work was included in the 2004/2005 Carnegie International, Pittsburgh.

Artist Exhibitions
The DissolveA paradigm shift in contemporary art is rare and hard to recognize at its inception, but that is what curators Sarah Lewis and Daniel Belasco did in The Dissolve, SITE SANTA FE’s Eighth International Biennial. The curators presented a new sensibility in the art of our time, a mingling of up-to-the-minute technology and traditional visual arts (painting, drawing, and sculpture) with dance, music, and film. The fundamental form of this new work was animation, uniting the technological (the camera) with the handmade (drawing).VIEW EXHIBITION
