Encounters in Painting and Film What do filmmakers and painters have in common? The history of the dynamic relationship between painting and film/video remains influential to both disciplines today. When looking at and speaking of Michelangelo Antononi, John Baldessari, William Kentridge, Pipilotti Rist, Mary Reid Kelley, Terence Malik, Yayoi Kusama, Andy Warhol, Wilhelm Sasnal, Erica Gibson, David Lynch and the Kuchar brothers, among many others, we can see the flow of ideas back and forth across the boundaries of these disciplines. Puppets, color field, stop animation, painting movie sets and painting movie stars, stills, collage, and the examination of narrative from the single image to multiple frames are all examples of tools for making used in both painting and film. Students will experiment in either/both mediums as they work towards a final project. Kirby and Anno will provide a class that allows for provocative and quality studio time to make new works. Lectures, field trips, lab time will be included.
