FILM: CREATIVITY IN FOCUS
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 7:00 PM
CHUCK CLOSE, an astounding portrait of one of the world's leading contemporary painters, was a parting gift from filmmaker Marion Cajori before she died. With editing completed by Ken Kobland, CHUCK CLOSE limns the life and work of a man who has reinvented portraiture. Close photographs his subjects, blows up the image to gigantic proportions, divides it into a detailed grid and then uses a complex set of colors and patterning to reconstruct each face. The genius of the film is not only that it allows the artist to illuminate his methodology (he is wonderfully articulate), but also that it features his friends and colleagues (Brice Marden, Robert Storr, Dorothea Rockburne, Philip Glass, Arne Glimcher, Kiki Smith, Elizabeth Murray, Alex Katz, Kirk Varnedoe, among others) who make important contributions to appreciating Close's gifts.
"Mesmerizing...Splendid." - New York Times
"If you are even remotely interested in the art world, this is a must-see." - Time Out NY
Presented in cooperation with SLC Film Center

PANEL: THE INFLUENCE OF MEDIA IN CONTEMPORARY DANCE
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 7:00 PM
Inspired by the use of 3-D video and live-capture technology in OpenEnded Group and Bill T. Jones's After Ghostcatching installation (featured in New Frontier), this panel brings together the leaders of Utah's contemporary dance community to debate the pros and cons of integrating dance and digital technology. If one uses video with dance, does it risk being just another bad music video, or can technology be used to help redefine the medium of dance itself?
