Lowave Collection

Lowave's film and video collection has been built between 2002 and 2014 and features over 250 video artists and filmmakers from around the world. The label has contributed to an important number of international exhibitions, biennials, film and video festivals, as well as academic programmes. As Lowave's activities evolve, we have stopped our film distribution and our catalogue serves now as an archive that documents over a decade of film and video art history. A selection of our DVDs is on sale at Re:Voir in Paris.

Robert Todd

*USA. Lives and works in Boston, USA.

Robert Todd first gained worldwide recognition as a painter. Since 1985 he has been teaching art in Boston. He has been making his own films since 1992. As a filmmaker interested in “non-fictional material poetry” he has produced a steady stream of short films that refuse being categorized. His work has been shown in several countries and has received a number of awards.
