Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania…Animator Robert Breer talks about his long career and
recent work at the Carnegie International Free Lecture presented by Carnegie Museum of Art on
Saturday, February 19, at 2:00 p.m. in the Carnegie Lecture Hall.
Breer, whose work is currently on view in the 2004–5 Carnegie International and
in Drawings and Early Sculpture by Robert Breer exhibited at Pittsburgh Filmmakers February 18 through
April 3, melds abstraction with figural elements, taken from drawing and photography, to create
kinetic collages in his animated films. Specializing in hand-drawn and stop-motion techniques,
Breer fills his animation with lively rhythms.
