A Pennsylvanian with deep West Virginia ties, Brent Green makes films that are eccentric, delicate, anarchic, both melancholic and hopeful. Touching upon bygone traditions of American oral-histories and dark fables, Green creates handmade, stop-motion animated works from drawings, found props, and handcrafted characters. At the Contemporary, Green will premiere his newest film Gravity was Everywhere Back Then as a work-in-progress, for which he will create a life-size environment in the Front Room.
