Biography

Carl George is an artist working primarily in experimental film, painting, and collage. He is a founding member of the non-profit art collective Allied Productions ( www.alliedproductions.org ), and has curated exhibitions in venues such as The Armand Hammer Museum, The Film Society of Lincoln Center, The New York Department of Cultural Affairs, ABC No Rio, Participant, Inc., The Kinsey Institute, Warner Brothers and Paramount Studios Hollywood, and Cinecitta Studios, Rome.

Many of his short experimental films have been shown in festivals internationally and are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney, the Guggenheim Museum, and the New York Public Library. His 1986 short film, The Lost 40 Days has been digitized with the assistance of the National Film Preservation Foundation and is now in the permanent collections of the National Film Archive at the Library of Congress and Anthology Film Archives in New York.

His 1989 film DHPG Mon Amour, documenting the radical advances made by people with AIDS in developing their own health care, is a classic of AIDS activist filmmaking and was recently incorporated into the Oscar-nominated documentary How to Survive a Plague (2012).

Carl is a 2018 Yaddo Fellow, a 2022 Kresge Foundation Fellow and the recipient of many grants, awards, and citations.
