Jul-21-18 01:00 PM Paranoid Park

Paranoid Park

2007. USA/France. Written and directed by Gus Van Sant. Based on a young adult novel by Blake Nelson, Van Sant’s 2007 film takes the filmmaker back to the Pacific Northwest of his earliest work. Gabe Nevins heads a mostly nonprofessional cast as a teenage skateboarder profoundly traumatized when he witnesses a killing; with this sudden maturity, life with his cheerleader girlfriend will never be the same. The film was photographed by Christopher Doyle in a delirious swirl of video, Super 8, and 35mm. 85 min.

Jul-21-18 04:00 PM Into the Abyss

Into the Abyss

2011. USA/Germany/Great Britain. Directed by Werner Herzog. In 2001 a horrendous triple murder was committed in Conroe, Texas. Michael Perry and Jason Burkett were convicted of killing a mother, her son, and his friend in cold blood. In Into the Abyss, Perry is on death row while Burkett is serving a 40-year sentence. Herzog meets the convicts and asks simple, direct questions about their lives and their heinous actions. There is no doubt about guilt here; Herzog focuses instead on more personal territory, demonstrating skillful restraint and lack of judgment. He also interviews Perry and Burkett’s families and those of the victims. 107 min.

Jul-21-18 07:00 PM Giant


1956. USA. Directed by George Stevens. Nominated for 10 Oscars, Giant is a sweeping saga of jealousy, racism, and the clash of cultures in the vast Texas oilfields. Wealthy rancher Bick Benedict and dirt-poor cowboy Jett Rink both woo Leslie Lynnton, a beautiful young woman from Maryland who is new to Texas. She marries Benedict, but is shocked by the racial bigotry of the white Texans against the locals of Mexican descent. Meanwhile, Rink discovers oil on a small plot of land, and while he uses his vast new wealth to buy all the land surrounding the Benedict ranch, the Benedicts’ disagreement over prejudice fuels conflict that runs across generations. 201 min.

Jul-21-18 09:00 PM PopRally Presents Studio Visit: Practice as Ritual

PopRally Presents Studio Visit: Practice as Ritual

Welcome to the studio, please excuse the mess! Join us for PopRally Presents Studio Visit: Practice as Ritual, an evening of artistic and musical performances exposing the rituals and labor of art making. Through a series of three live performances, we will explore ways to reanimate works of art that no longer live in the studio, but are now on display in the exhibition Studio Visit: Selected Gifts from Agnes Gund (closing July 22).

Inspired by Wolfgang Laib’s Milkstone—a hand-polished piece of marble unto which milk is carefully poured daily and contained—painter and sculptor Torkwase Dyson will consider the gestural language of building and maintaining sculpture. Choreographer Jonathan González will unearth the artist’s hand with a performance in the Sculpture Garden inspired by Richard Serra’s Promenade Notebook Drawing for Obama, an etching included in the Artists for Obama portfolio coinciding with Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign. The evening will culminate with a musical performance and DJ set by Yatta reflecting on Glenn Ligon’s Graduating Girl (Version 2) #1, a series of paintings by Ligon based on coloring books created in the 1970s by, for, and about black people.

Admission ($25) includes performances, access to the exhibition Studio Visit: Selected Gifts from Agnes Gund, DJ set, and open bar. You must be 21 or older to attend this event.

Please enter through The Ronald S. and Jo Carole Lauder Building entrance at 11 West 53 Street.

Jul-22-18 02:00 PM William Eggleston in the Real World

William Eggleston in the Real World

2005. USA. Written and directed by Michael Almereyda. William Eggleston, an American photographer born in 1939 in Memphis, Tennessee, is credited with the rise of color photography in the US and the so-called American vernacular style—arresting images of ordinary objects such as gas stations, soda cans strewn on the side of highways, vending machines, and street signs. While teaching at Harvard in the mid-1970s, Eggleston (who was the subject of a major MoMA exhibition in 1976) became enamored of his trademark dye-transfer photographic printing. 86 min.
