CINEPLEX EVENTS IN THE GALLERY SERIES LINEUP – WINTER/SPRING 2020
FRIDA. VIVA LA VIDA - NEXO
Beginning January 19, 2020
Directed by Giovanni Troilo
Narrated by Asia Argento, Frida. Viva la Vida examines the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: the revolutionary, pioneering artist of contemporary feminism and the human being, victim of her tortured body and a tormented relationship. The film alternates between interviews with original documents, letters, diaries, private confessions and captivating reconstructions and Frida Kahlo’s own paintings, kept in some of the most amazing museums in Mexico, giving audiences a full portrait of the icon.
LUCIAN FREUD: A SELF PORTRAIT - EXHIBTION ON SCREEN
Beginning February 16, 2020
Directed by David Bickerstaff
For the first time in history, the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits. The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself.
GAUGUIN FROM THE NATIONAL GALLERY, LONDON – MORE2SCREEN
Beginning March 22, 2020
Directed by Patricia Wheatley
Filmed on location in Tahiti, France, the Marquesas Islands and the UK, the documentary explores Gauguin’s extraordinary – and often problematic – artistic achievement with commentary from his descendants, contemporary artists and world experts. The film examines Gauguin’s legacy not only through the lens of art history, but also those of gender and post-colonial politics, reassessing the artist’s treatment of young indigenous women and his role in 19th century French colonialism.
EASTER IN ART – EXHIBTION ON SCREEN
Beginning April 5, 2020
Directed by Phil Grabsky
This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day.
