Abstraction and the Movies

Exhibition Website

Mar 1 2017 - Jun 5 2017

This exhibition pairs and compares movies and paintings from the early to mid-twentieth century. Primarily American, the movies span the classical Hollywood period—from 1927, which marked the introduction of sound in movies, to 1967, the influential releases of Bonnie and Clyde and The Graduate, which signaled dramatic stylistic and thematic changes in American popular cinema. The companion paintings are drawn from the abstract works in the Anderson Collection.
