Malcolm Le Grice (Plymouth) studied painting at the Slade School London but began to experiment with other media in the mid 1960’s, at that time mainly working with film. He started a film department at St Martin’s School of Art and was a founder member of the London Filmmakers Co-operative Workshop. In 1969 he began to experiment with computers and made a computer-generated film in that year.
His work has been shown internationally in major art exhibitions like the Paris Biennale No.8 and Documenta 6, in film retrospectives and festival screenings including shows at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Louvre, Paris and recently at the Tate Modern in London.
His recent video and digital work has been shown in Graz, the Lux Center – London, the Deutsches Film Museum – Frankfurt and the Art Gallery of Ontario – Toronto. ‘Experimental Cinema in the Digital Age’ (BFI Publishing, 2001), a major collection of his theoretical and critical writing from the early seventies on is published by the British Film Institute.
