Join Cornell Cinema this Fall for a mini festival of art films featuring three portraits of iconic 20th century artists: photographer/filmmaker Robert Frank, painter/sculptor Eva Hesse and multifaceted artist David Hockney. Hailing from Sweden, Germany and Great Britain, respectively, the backstories of these artists are fascinating and lend a context to their work that makes it that much more interesting. The series begins with the awe-inspiring Strange & Familiar: Architecture on Fogo Island, a story of the transformative power of architecture, art & design amid a formidable landscape, featuring the otherworldly buildings of architect Todd Saunders. The series is cosponsored with the Departments of Art and History of Art, as well as the Johnson Museum of Art.
