FrameWorks 2019: Art on Film

May 3–10, 2019

A curated series of films about artists and their work, from the emergence of a young Picasso and the phenoms Barbara Rubin and Jean-Michel Basquiat to octogenarians Yayoi Kusama and Joel-Peter and Jerome Witkin. Plus a film by one of today’s most unsettling performance artists, investigations into a famous art heist in Chile, and the “murder” of a Barnett Newman canvas in the Netherlands. It all kicks off with Christo and his Floating Piers, a feat of imagination—and engineering—that allowed over a million visitors to walk on water.

Programmed by Kathryn Bonomi

Visit the Jane Peck Gallery on the third floor to view the exhibition PUSHING THE FRAME which features selected films from SUNY Purchase students as well as Jonas Mekas’  To Barbara Rubin with Love.
