Duane Michals : Talking Pictures, 12 Mini Movies
In cooperation with the MFA Photo/Video department, Duane Michals will be screening Talking Pictures: 12 Mini Movies at the SVA Theatre on Friday, May 13th at 7:30PM.
Steeped in cinematic history Michals draws inspiration from a sophisticated range of sources - early stars of the silver screen such as Charlie Chaplin as well as esoteric French illusionists like Georges Méliès. Parallels can be seen between Michals’ movies and those of experimental, underground filmmakers like Kenneth Anger, whose work, as Michals’, openly addresses the subject of homosexuality. Michals’ films revisit, reexamine and reinterpret topics that have preoccupied the artist throughout his career, specifically issues of identity, love, and loss.
Michals show " Duane Michals: Sequences & Talking Pictures" is currently up from May 5th – June 11th, 2016 at the DC Moore Gallery NYC.
Tickets will be sold at the door for $10 and $5 for students, but FREE for current SVA students, faculty, and alumni with SVA ID.
