Brian Springer

(b. 1959)

New York Times media critic Stephen Holden called video artist Brian Springer's documentary Spin "a devastating critique of television's profound manipulativeness in the way it packages the news and politics." Springer's work has received international acclaim and has been broadcast nationally in the U.K. and by over 30 PBS affiliates in the United States.

As a media artist Springer has exhibited collaborative art projects in Europe and the United States in museum and gallery settings. During his years in Buffalo, N.Y. he exhibited frequently at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center and was a founding member of Squeaky Wheel as well as a number of artist collectives. (See sidebar for examples.)

He currently lives in California.
