Beyond Art: Artists Making Movies

Wed, June 7, 2023

Floor 3, Theater

On the occasion of Josh Kline: Project for a New American Century, this event brings together artists to share their work and discuss the possibilities and stakes of making moving image works outside of the art world.

In recent years, an emerging generation of visual artists is turning to mass media, like narrative feature films or television shows, as the means to circulate their work, following in the footsteps of artist/directors including Steve McQueen, Rashid Johnson, and Robert Longo, among others. With the explosion of streaming services, and commercial art galleries increasingly reluctant to take chances on video art, more artists are lured out of their art studios and onto film sets. This conversation brings together artists who have been in dialogue with each other as they work towards realizing motion picture ambitions.

Speakers include Makayla Bailey and Aria Dean, Catharine Czudej, Diane Severin Nguyen, Andrew Norman Wilson, and Josh Kline, who will moderate the conversation.

The Susan and John Hess Family Theater is equipped with an induction loop and infrared assistive listening system. Accessible seating is available.
