Fisher-priced cinema that isn’t Pixelvision at SFMOMA

This week SFMOMA inaugurates a film series called “A Portrait of the Artist, or Fisher-Inspired Films” with Dreams That Money Can Buy (1946), a surrealist collaboration directed by Hans Richter and featuring contributions by Max Ernst, Man Ray, and others. The series is constructed around the collection of Doris and Donald Fisher, featuring cinematic work by artists including Andy Warhol and Agnes Martin.
Here’s an excerpt from the Alexander Calder portion of Dreams That Money Can Buy:
