TUE MAY 31 @ 6:30 PM
Art historians Eleanor Munro, Linda Nochlin, and Robert Rosenblum recall Hilla Rebay, an accomplished artist and the founding director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Karole Vail, who organized the current exhibition Art of Tomorrow: Hilla Rebay and Solomon R. Guggenheim, moderates the panel discussion.
The Non-Objective Moving Image: Reflections on the Art of Film
WED JUNE 8 @ 6:30 PM
Hilla Rebay's commitment to non-objective art extended to the realm of film, and her support of the work of avant-garde filmmakers attested to her belief in the power of the moving image. She organized many "Film Concerts" in which works by Viking Eggling, Oskar Fischinger, Norman McLaren, and Hans Richter were featured. John G. Hanhardt, Senior Curator of Film and Media Arts, presents films shown at these original programs and situates the work within the context of avant-garde cinema.
