Event Details

Join Art21 for a special screening and conversation with artist Aki Sasamoto. The artist will be joined by documentary filmmakers Rafael Salazar and Ava Wiland of RAVA Films, who recently directed the Art21 New York Close Up film, "Aki Sasamoto: An Artist Walks into a Bar." Mirroring the artist's own playful and absurdist sensibility, the film blends fiction and documentary—a first for Art21—into an at once a magical realist world of spinning objects and a psychological exploration of fundamental questions about artistic creativity. 

 

The evening will begin with a screening of "An Artist Walks into a Bar" paired with the 2017 film collaboration between Art21, RAVA Films, and Sasamoto, "Aki Sasamoto is Feeling Stretched."

 

Following the screening, Art21's Director of Video Programming, Nick Ravich, will moderate a conversation between Sasamoto, Wiland and Salazar, exploring the relationship and creative collaboration between artist and documentarian. 


Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Program begins at 7:00 p.m.
 

Admission is free, but advance registration is required.
 

This event is generously hosted by Bortolami Gallery.
