Picasso and Braque Go to the Movies
(Arne Glimcher, 2008)
Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.
Narrated by Martin Scorsese and featuring interviews with such contemporary artists as Chuck Close, Julian Schnabel, and Eric Fischl, Picasso and Braque Go to the Movies examines the link between cubism and early film and the myriad of ways that the cinema revolutionized our perception of time, space, and motion. (60 mins., video) The film screens in conjunction with our exhibition of Transfigurations: Modern Masters from the Wexner Family Collection, featuring an in-depth selection of works by Pablo Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, and Jean Dubuffet.
