Nancy Holt to be featured at Punto de Vista Film Festival

Nancy Holt will be featured in the Retrospectives section of the 2021 Punto de Vista Film Festival in Pamplona, Spain. The film festival celebrates non-fiction films and "aims to revisit the history of film by connecting it to the present and, in turn, to give exposure to film-makers and artists whose work has been little seen in Spain." 

The following Holt films will be screened at the festival:

Nancy Holt, Pine Barrens (1975)

Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, East Coast, West Coast (1969)

Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, Swamp (1971)

Nancy Holt and Robert Smithson, Mono Lake (1968/2004)

Nancy Holt, Revolve (1977)

Nancy Holt, Sun Tunnels (1978)

Punto de Vista's Art Director Garbiñe Ortega has curated this selection of films by Nancy Holt. The program pairs Holt's films with those of her contemporaries who also explored the relationship between space and perception: Joan Jonas, Robert Smithson, and Gordon Matta-Clark. The Retropectives section of the 2021 Punto de Vista festival will also feature the curator Amos Vogel.

Punto de Vista 2021 will take place from March 15th—20th. Click here to read the full announcement about Holt on the Punto de Vista website.
