Color as Emotion in Art (20 min)

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

1:00pm

Tour Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings 1913–1915, an exhibition featuring 25 seminal works by the influential American modernist painter created during his years in Berlin (1913–15). The paintings reveal the profound impact of World War I and elucidate the artist's appropriation of military symbols and Native American motifs. Hartley’s paintings from this period reflect dynamic shifts in style and subject matter, and evidence a critical moment in his body of work. The exhibition, organized by the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, in collaboration with LACMA, coincides with the centennial commemoration of World War I. The presentation in Los Angeles marks the first exhibition of Hartley's work in Southern California in over thirty years, and the first focused exhibition of Hartley’s Berlin paintings in the United States since they were created.

Parade: U.S. Premiere

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024

7:30pm

Parade is the translation of a stage work by choreographer Adam Linder into a new cinematic form. Initially conceived by Linder as a reinterpretation of Jean Cocteau’s one-act ballet created in 1917 for Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, Shahryar Nashat’s filmic adaptation departs from the two original sources to become a new text through which the three dancers’ performances are catalogued and mediated through a particularly authorial lens. Parade seeks to extend the life of the choreography into a new cultural form while reconsidering the role of the camera as a passive witness to performance and dance in broader terms. The presentation of Parade marks the work’s United States premiere. (2014, Dir. S. Nashat, 38 min.) 

A Q&A with artist Shahryar Nashat and choreographer Adam Linder, moderated by curator Aram Moshayedi, follows the screening.

About Bone Clocks:

Following a scalding row with her mother, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: A sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as “the radio people,” Holly is a lightning rod for psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought to life.

For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics—and their enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every decade of Holly’s life, affecting all the people Holly loves—even the ones who are not yet born.

Rich with character and realms of possibility, The Bone Clocks is a kaleidoscopic novel that begs to be taken apart and put back together. (Random House)
David Mitchell will be in conversation with an interviewer TBA. There will be Q & A followed by a book signing.
