As an artist, Andrew Lampert regularly uses moving images, live performance, and recorded sound to address the contemporary condition of cinema spectatorship in its waning days. He is concerned with time as experienced on screen, in the course of production, and most especially by the audience in a theater. He has exhibited at venues including the Whitney Museum of American Art, MoMA P.S.1, the Getty Museum, the British Film Institute, the New York Film Festival, and is distributed by Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI). Lampert is also Curator of Collections at Anthology Film Archives, where he is responsible for the daily management, photochemical preservation, and digitization of the moving image and audio collections, as well as co-programming the quarterly screening schedule. He has preserved more than two hundred movies by artists including Wallace Berman, Robert Breer, Bruce Conner, Tony Conrad, Manuel De Landa, the Kuchar Brothers, Marie Menken, Carolee Schneemann, Paul Sharits, Stuart Sherman, Michael Snow, and many others. Lampert teaches in the Film Department at Purchase College, and is currently editing a book titled The George Kuchar Reader to be published by Primary Information.
