"A reminder that, in a world of continuously streaming images, an artist like Mr. Jacobs challenges the tyranny of visual uniformity, and not simply with angry words."
—The New York Times

A renegade avant-garde visionary whose experiments with the third dimension date back to the 1960s, Ken Jacobs’ recent works continue to explore cinema’s perception-altering potential.
