Film | Academy Award Winning The V.I.P.s (1963) with Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Margaret Rutherford, and Orson Welles


The interconnected lives of airline passengers, among them business tycoons, filmmakers, socialites and royals fogged in at a London airport, are disrupted due to the delay. Director: Anthony Asquith Cast: Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Louis Jourdan, Elsa Martinelli, Maggie Smith, Rod Taylor, Orson Welles, and Margaret Rutherford Richard Burton established himself as a formidable Shakespearean actor in the 1950s and gave a memorable performance as Hamlet in 1964. He is widely regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation and was nominated for an Academy Award seven times, but never won. He received BAFTAs, Golden Globes, and Tony Awards for Best Actor. In the mid-1960s, Burton became a top box office star, and by the late 1960s, he was one of the highest-paid actors in the world. Elizabeth Taylor began her career as a child actress in the early 1940s and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She then became the world's highest paid movie star in the 1960s, remaining a well-known public figure for the rest of her life. In 1999, the American Film Institute named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend of Classic Hollywood cinema. Margaret Rutherford came to national attention following World War II in the film adaptations of Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit and Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. She won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for her role as the Duchess of Brighton in The V.I.P.s. Orson Welles was an American director, actor, producer, and screenwriter who is remembered for his innovative work in film, radio, and theatre. He is considered to be among the greatest and most influential filmmakers of all time. In 1938, his radio anthology series The Mercury Theatre on the Air gave Welles the platform to find international fame as the director and narrator of a radio adaptation of H. G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds, which caused some listeners to believe that an alien invasion was in fact occurring. Although reports of panic were mostly false and overstated, they rocketed 23-year-old Welles to notoriety. His first film was Citizen Kane (1941), which is consistently ranked as one of the greatest films ever made and which he co-wrote, produced, directed and starred in as the title character, Charles Foster Kane.

Gallery Talk | Uta Barth: Exhibition Walkthrough


Elizabeth Smith and Sarah Meister take you through this exhibition by Uta Barth. Barth’s expansive 2022 series focuses on the intersection of Southern California light with the architecture of the Getty Center. It traces the changing light at one location of the Richard Meier built campus, for the period of one year. The location was photographed every five minutes, from dawn to dusk, on two days each month, for the entirety of the year. Made with a GigaPan, over 64,000 images were captured and a Timelapse video sequence now shows the progression of this movement of light. As the view repeats from panel to panel, there are subtle changes in light as well as more dramatic blurring and color shifts, which invoke inverted optical afterimages and other visual phenomena that occur when staring at a fixed point for a prolonged period of time. Presented as twelve consecutive single views, the video is embedded among the still images of the installation, and it comes as a surprise to discover what one first assumes to be a still photograph to actually be the moving summation of the show.

Opening Reception | Ella Rose Flood: Only SIlver


Thus the shadow of the object fell upon the ego, and the latter could be judged by a special agency, as though it were an object, the forsaken object. In this way an object-loss was transformed into an ego-loss and the conflict between the ego and the loved person into a cleavage between the critical activity of the ego and the ego as altered by identification.— Freud, “Mourning and Melancholia” It’s probably too late, but the artist talks a lot about melancholia and loss. What it means: when you lose someone or something (through some kind of breach: death, betrayal, disappointment, or abandonment) and fall into melancholia, what is happening is different than grief. In grief, the process is of slowly snipping each thread that connects you to the lost “object”. In melancholia, you don’t fully accept that the “object” is gone and you swallow the lost object or person into yourself. It’s like swallowing a potato whole instead of eating a bag of French fries. In both cases the potato is gone.

Opening Reception | Joan Hall: Themes and Dreams


A retrospective of collage and assemblage illustration by New York-based artist Joan Hall. Self-curated with input from independent curator Lilly Wei, the exhibition will feature seven distinct bodies of work that explore modernist strategies of fragmentation and re-composition. Produced over a 50-year career, the 100 pieces in the exhibition will be exhibited together for the first time charting the depth and breadth of Hall's varied interests and talent. Since 1970, Joan Hall has been using collage and assemblage to explore different cultures, times and places. She creates imaginary spaces and newly arranged realities that have dreamlike qualities infused with humor and irony. Her assemblages tell stories by giving found objects new meanings resulting from unexpected juxtapositions and placements.

Concert | Music and Conversation on the First-Generation American Experience


Ethiopian-born singer songwriter Meklit Hadero draws inspiration from the first generation American experience--both her own and others--to inform the public radio show Movement. The show recenters immigrants, migrants and refugees as essential drivers of cultural expression, innovative perspectives, and powerful new art. Over a series of conversations and interviews, Meklit and her band engage with migrant Americans to put their stories into a creative context for a musical journey that more fully encompasses the narrative tapestry of their unique heritage. Meklit will be joined onstage by Egyptian rapper Felukah and singer/songwriter Alsarah of Alsarah & the Nubatones.
