Brian O’Doherty: Hopper’s Windows

THU, Sep 26, 2013
7 pm

Location: Lower Gallery

 

 

As one of Edward Hopper’s few lifelong friends, artist and author Brian O’Doherty made a film that captured the overwhelming silence, not only of the spaces and characters in Hopper’s paintings, but also of the artist himself.  For this evening program, O’Doherty will discuss Hopper’s Silence and the film’s origin: a rare TV interview he secured with the mysterious artist. O’Doherty will explore Hopper’s enigmatic scenes and how the artist “was mysterious even to himself.”

 

$8 general admission; $6 senior citizens and students.
