Date Time Event Description
Oct-07-18 12:00 AM Charles White: A Retrospective “Art must be an integral part of the struggle,” Charles White insisted. “It can’t simply mirror what’s taking place. … It must ally itself with the forces of liberation.” Over the course of his four-decade career, White’s commitment to creating powerful images of African Americans—what his gallerist and, later, White himself described as “images of dignity”—was unwavering. Using his virtuoso skills as a draftsman, printmaker, and painter, White developed his style and approach over time to address shifting concerns and new audiences. In each of the cities in which he lived over the course of his career—Chicago, New York, and, finally, Los Angeles—White became a key figure within a vibrant community of creative artists, writers, and activists.

White’s far-reaching vision of a socially committed practice attracted promising young artists, including many artists of color, and he became one of the 20th century’s most important and dedicated teachers. Acclaimed contemporary artists David Hammons and Kerry James Marshall were among his many students: as Marshall reflected, “Under Charles White’s influence I always knew that I wanted to make work that was about something: history, culture, politics, social issues. … It was just a matter of mastering the skills to actually do it.”

Charles White: A Retrospective is the first major museum survey devoted to the artist in over 30 years. The exhibition charts White’s full career—from the 1930s through his premature death in 1979—with over 100 works, including drawings, paintings, prints, photographs, illustrated books, record covers and archival materials.

Oct-21-18 02:30 PM Red Boogie

Red Boogie

1982. Yugoslavia. Directed by Karpo Godina. An ingenious blend of fiction and documentary, Red Boogie nearly picks up where Godina’s The Raft of Medusa left off. Set in the 1950s, when the nation reinvented itself for a third time as the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, the film follows a group of Slovenian musicians who are “corrupted” by jazz and other forms of Western decadence and shunted off to the remote provinces as punishment for their artistic exuberance. Print courtesy the Slovenian Cinematheque and the Slovenian Film Center. In Slovenian; English subtitles. 84 min.

Artificial Paradise

1990. Yugoslavia. Directed by Karpo Godina. Artificial Paradise portrays the surprising creative friendship between a certain young German army officer named Fritz Lang, vacationing in Slovenia at the end of World War I, and a local lawyer and avid amateur filmmaker, Karol Gatnik, who was responsible for making some of the very first moving images within the region. Print courtesy the Slovenian Cinematheque and the Slovenian Film Center. In Slovenian, German, English; English subtitles. 102 min.

Applying deep research, precise editing, and fine-tuned humor to a combination of her own cinematography and found footage, Shambhavi Kaul depicts landscapes and figures that exist between imagination and reality. Her work uses cultural tropes from places like Hong Kong, India, and Mexico to reveal the ambiguous meanings behind loaded popular signifiers. Kaul presents a selection of her films, including new work, followed by a conversation.

Oct-23-18 04:30 PM Karpopotnik and more

Karpopotnik

2013. Slovenia. Directed by Matjaž Ivanišin. In 1970 Karpo Godina shot footage for his unfinished Super 8mm documentary Imam jednu kuću (I Have One House), a haunting, August Sander–like portrait of farmers and folkloric customs in northwest Serbia. Some 40 years later, his former student Matjaž Ivanišin revisited these villagers to discover what became of them, creating a poetical meditation on history, landscape, and memory and an indelible compilation of fragments from Godina’s original work. In Serbo-Croatian; English subtitles. 50 min.

Black Film

1971. Yugoslavia. Directed by Želimir Žilnik. Courtesy of the filmmaker. In Serbo-Croatian; English subtitles. 15 min.

Oct-23-18 06:30 PM Occupation in 26 Pictures

Occupation in 26 Pictures

1978. Yugoslavia. Directed by Lordan Zafranović. Exquisitely photographed by Karpo Godina, this Croatian/Yugoslavian variation on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom is a portrait of life in Dubrovnik under Italian occupation during World War II. A powerful statement on individual and collective evil, the film inscribes the devastating rift between three friends as they choose very different paths in the fight against fascism. Print courtesy Croatian Film Archives. In Serbo-Croatian, Italian; English subtitles. 116 min.
