Sherry Millner – EXPERIMENTAL IMPULSE Interview (2011)

Video artist Sherry Millner discusses her experiences, as a working class New Yorker and self-described anarcho-feminist, at CalArts in the early 70s. She talks about the culture shock of coming to a school seemingly located in the middle of nowhere, but populated by the children of the wealthy. She also describes how the interdisciplinary atmosphere of the campus made her feel at home, since it seemed in tune with the cross-fertilization of artforms that she had known in Lower Manhattan.

This interview was conducted by Thomas Lawson in Los Angeles on 8 August 2011. Camera and sound by Ernest Larson.
