Join us for a special tribute to Paul Clipson who passed away on February 3, 2018 at 52. He was a beloved colleague and friend to many at SFMOMA, where he worked as the lead projectionist and AV manager for many years.

An experimental filmmaker recognized nationally and internationally, he collaborated with scores of musicians throughout the world, and was a powerful voice in California's film and music scenes.

Celebrate the life and work of Paul Clipson with a slide show of illustrated film changeover notes from his book REEL, and a screening of his films and others he curated for the museum. The program includes a special musical performance by Paul’s collaborators and friends, Liz Harris and Joshua Churchill.

SFMOMA wishes to thank Paul’s local family Yelena Soboleva and Anya Kamenskaya, and Chris Duncan and Maggie Otero of Land and Sea for their generous support of the program.
