Philip Guston: A Life Lived
In conjunction with Paulina Michnowska's show, Away From The Inhabited Districts, we will be screening "Philip Guston: A Life Lived" this Saturday, April 16th. The film has been selected by the artist to prompt a discussion about the practice of painting, and what it means to be a painter.
We will be serving drinks and snacks from 7pm.
The screening starts promptly at 7:30pm.
Paulina's work will remain installed on the day, and we encourage you to come early if you have not yet seen her paintings and ceramics.
If you are on Facebook, please join our event so we know to expect you!
ABOUT THE FILM
Running time: 58 min
Synopsis: Late in life, the artist looks back over a career that originated in social realism during the '30s, moved to the center of Abstract Expressionism, and culminated in a return to figuration. Filmed at his retrospective in San Francisco in 1980 and at his Woodstock studio, where Guston is seen painting, the artist speaks candidly about his philosophy of painting and the psychological motivation for his work.
