Painters Painting
6:30 - 8:30pm

Originally released in 1973 but never before available on DVD, Painters Painting is the definitive documentary on the New York School of painters, from 1940-1970. Director Emile de Antonio (Point of Order and Millhouse) interviews artists in their studios about their art from the period of Abstract Expressionism, through Hard Edge and Color Field painting to Pop Art.

Among the featured painters are Robert Rauschenberg, William de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Helen Frankenthaler, Frank Stella, Barnett Newman, Hans Hoffman, Jules Olitski, Philip Pavia, Larry Poons, Robert Motherwell, and Kenneth Noland. Painters Painting is newly digitally remastered and restored by the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the University of Wisconsin Film Department.

Wednesday 31 May
Yarn
6:30 - 7:50pm
Meet the artists who are disrupting the traditional notions of knit and crochet, bringing yarn out of the house and on to the street. Playing with space and environment, YARN follows circus performers, wool graffiti artists and interactive designers as they re-invent our relationship with this colorful threaded tradition.

From the seas of Barcelona , to the cobblestoned streets of Rome and back to the angled skyscrapers of New York, Director Una Lorenzen weaves an animated tale of a visually striking landscape layered with stunning graphics, soothing poetry, and a vibrant spirit.
