Grahame Weinbren is a media artist and filmmaker. In collaboration with Roberta Friedman he completed several 16mm films in the 1970s and 80s, which were exhibited in festivals and microcinemas internationally. He currently works primarily in digital media, including three films on paintings by Turner, Rubens and Kandinsky commissioned by the National Gallery of Art and the Guggenheim Museum.
In the early 1980s Weinbren became interested in the emergent technology of interactive video cinema as an extension of his experimental film work. He completed six full-scale
interactive cinema installation projects between 1983 and 2006, which are exhibited in museums
and galleries internationally. Past exhibitions include the Whitney Biennial, the Berlinale, the
Centre Pompidou, NTT-ICC (Tokyo) and the Gwanju Biennial (Korea). "The Erl
King" (collaboration with Roberta Friedman, 1983-5), the first artists' work to combine computer
interactivity with cinema, is in the collection of the Guggenheim Museum.
Weinbren is credited as filmmaker and/or editor on a number of widely screened fiction films, television programs and documentaries, including "George" (HBO, 2000), about an autistic 12 year old and "Umbrellas," about Christo's Umbrellas artwork for Japan and California (for Maysles Films, winner FIFA 1993). He was director of Post Typhoon Sky, a boutique New York post production company during the late 90s and early 2000s,
In the early 200s he worked with software engineer Isaac Dimitrovsky on the development of LimoHD, a low-cost full-quality high definition cinema technology. The first set of his LimoHD works, "Letters," was screened at the 2008 Berlin Film Festival, the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, and numerous other venues. "Still Life with Banquet," a collaboration with 'slow food’ chef Kitty Greenwald, was a banquet for 108 diners accompanied by six large LimoHD video projections, produced for ZERO ONE, the 2010 San Jose Biennial.
Weinbren's essays about Media Art, Cinema, and Technology are widely reprinted. He teaches in the graduate division of the School of Visual Arts in New York, and is the senior editor of the Millennium Film Journal.
