DESCRIPTION

The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive is the visual arts center of the University of California, Berkeley, the nation’s leading public research university. Our mission is to inspire the imagination and ignite critical dialogue through art and film, engaging audiences from the UC Berkeley campus, the Bay Area, and beyond. Each year BAMPFA presents more than fifteen art exhibitions, nearly four hundred film programs, and dozens of performances, as well as lectures, symposia, and tours.

The Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive’s comprehensive collection—more than 19,000 works of art and 16,000 films and videos—is characterized by artistic excellence and innovation, intellectual exploration, and social commentary.

BAMPFA offers one of the most distinguished and provocative programs of art and film exhibitions in North America, reflecting the diverse interests of the University and Bay Area communities. Each year, we present and important temporary exhibitions that range from classical Asian art to challenging work by today’s artists. 
Our exhibition program includes installations that highlight the richness and scope of our collections, recent avant-garde work presented in the MATRIX Program, thematic exhibitions, artist retrospectives, and the annual UC Berkeley MFA exhibition. 

Each year, approximately 450 film screenings offer opportunities to discover and explore cinema from every film-producing country in the world. We present rare and rediscovered prints of movie classics, new and historic works by the world’s great film directors, restored silent films with live musical accompaniment, thematic retrospectives, and innovative works made by today’s film, video, and new media artists working in the areas of animation, documentary, experimental, and fiction film. Film screenings are often enlivened by in-person appearances by filmmakers, authors, critics, and scholars, who engage in discussion with audiences.
