Peter Dudar began his career as a painter and transitioned into conceptual art. In the early 1970s, he created the performance art partnership Missing Associates in collaboration with dancer/choreographer Lily Eng. Their partnership produced a unique hybrid of conceptual art, experimental dance and multimedia art. They were prime movers of the first wave of Toronto and international performance art and experimental dance in the 1970s. Post Missing Associates, Dudar screened internationally as a filmmaker. American Film Festival, New York, USA, 1983: "Peter Dudar's film DP is powerfully evocative. Many striking images and creative effects. The juxtaposition of words with related film clips is absolutely brilliant." Currently, Peter Dudar makes video and photo-based artwork. His 2011 video Starlings (at Nightfall) won the Steam Whistle Homebrew Award at Images Festival "in recognition of its arresting cinematic composition and elegant study of movement." Just recently, his video Shamans, the Cunning won the Best Experimental Film Award at the TUFF Festival, after screening on Toronto's subway system to 1.3 million commuters. Peter Dudar's just-released eBook: Missing Associates: Lily Eng and Peter Dudar documents Missing Associates' origin in Canada and subsequent progression throughout the Americas and Europe.
