    Conversation with Producers, Cinematographer, and Designer/Animator of the film ”THE NEW BAUHAUS” - 9/25/20

    The New Bauhaus - The life and legacy of Moholy-Nagy

    2019, Documentary, 85 minutes

    Director/Producer: Alysa Nahmias

    In 1937, László Moholy-Nagy came to Chicago to start the New Bauhaus, an art institute that aimed to pioneer the development and dissemination of modern design. The film’s narrative weaves original interviews with archival footage, voiceover, and stylized filming featuring Hans-Ulrich Obrist. The result is a new perspective view of a man who was ahead of his time and is increasingly relevant in today’s contemporary art and design discourses. Following recent retrospectives of Moholy-Nagy’s work at major museums, this film offers a more accessible and intimate, emotional journey through his life and his work as an artist, designer, visionary, and teacher. Moholy-Nagy believed that designing was “not a profession but an attitude,” he brought together art students and design students—something unheard of at the time—and challenged them to look at the world differently.

    Conversation with Artist Jill Magid, Director of ”The Proposal” - 6/4/21

    Conversation with Artist Jill Magid, Director of ”The Proposal” - 6/4/21

    A conversation with Senior Curator Corinne Erni, Filmmaker and Artist Jill Magid, and Dia Art Foundation Associate Curator Matilde Guidelli-Guidi. Before the screening of The Proposal, co-presented with Hamptons Doc Fest, in collaboration with Dia.

    The Proposal

    Known as “the artist among architects”, Luis Barragán is among the world’s most celebrated architects of the 20th century. Upon his death in 1988, much of his work was locked away in a Swiss bunker, hidden from the world’s view. In an attempt to resurrect Barragán’s life and art, boundary redefining artist Jill Magid creates a daring proposition that becomes a fascinating artwork in itself–a high-wire act of negotiation that explores how far an artist will go to democratize access to art.

    About Jill Magid
    American artist Jill Magid’s work is deeply ingrained in her lived experience, exploring and blurring the boundaries between art and life. Through her performance-based practice, Magid has initiated intimate relations with a number of organizations and structures of authority. She explores the emotional, philosophical, and legal tensions between the individual and ‘protective’ institutions, such as intelligence agencies or the police. To work alongside or within large organizations, Magid makes use of institutional quirks, systemic loopholes that allow her to make contact with people ‘on the inside’. Her work tends to be characterized by the dynamics of seduction, the resulting narratives often taking the form of a love story. It is typical of Magid’s practice that she follows the rules of engagement with an institution to the letter – sometimes to the point of absurdity.

    Chief Curator Alicia Longwell in conversation with painter Lucien Smith - 10/2/20

    Chief Curator Alicia Longwell in conversation with painter Lucien Smith - 10/2/20

    Join Chief Curator Alicia Longwell and abstract painter Lucien Smith, whose 10 large-scale paintings from his 2013 Southampton Suite are currently on view, for an illustrated talk.


     


    Lucien Smith (b.1989) is best known for his process-based works that employ both accidental and improvisational marks to create loose, all-over compositions. Organized by Alicia Longwell, Lucien Smith: Southampton Suite brings the artist’s Rain Paintings series to conclusion with the 10 large-scale paintings created in a plein air studio that he constructed on the East End during the summer of 2013. With the 9 x 7 ft acrylic on unprimed canvas Southampton Suite paintings, the artist created an immersive environment that continues his quest to “. . .replicate a natural process with manmade tools.” The ten works on view here from 2013 have never been shown as a group.


    Smith’s paintings, made by filling an empty fire extinguisher with paint and spraying the canvas, became widely known soon after his 2011 graduation from Cooper Union. What appealed to Smith was the way he was able to replicate a natural process—rain—with a manmade tool. For the first Rain Paintings series, Murmur of the Heart, he used blue and yellow paint; after this initial investigations he began to use a monochromatic approach, taking a cue from the traditional depiction of rain in Japanese woodblock prints.
