Art and a Movie: Matisse in Focus
Gallery Talk: Matisse in Focus
Special Exhibitions Gallery, first floor
Nan Brewer, the Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will present a pre-screening gallery talk on Henri Matisse’s late graphic work in the exhibition Matisse’s Jazz and Other Works from Indiana University Collections.
Film Screenings: A Model for Matisse (2003) and Henri Matisse (1946)
The gallery talk will be followed by a screening of A Model for Matisse, an award-winning documentary by Barbara Freed that tells the story behind Matisse’s last great project, Chapel of the Rosary, and the nun who made it happen. The classic French film Henri Matisse by François Campaux showing the artist at work in his studios will also be screened, featuring new subtitles by Brett Bowles, associate professor of French studies, offering English-speaking audiences a rare opportunity to experience this masterpiece on a large screen.
This program is presented in conjunction with the IU Cinema and is supported in part by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes. The talk and films are free and open to the public.
