On July 1 at 8pm at The Kitchen, Creative Time will present avante-garde filmmaker Cauleen Smith’s The Fullness of Time: an experimental film exploring the psychological fabric of Hurricane Katrina’s survivors. The film was shot concurrently with Paul Chan’s Waiting for Godot in New Orleans: a talk between Smith and Chan will follow the screening. Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
Catch an in-depth documentary about public art in New York City on July 2 at 8pm on Channel 13. The program will include an interview with David Byrne about his installation Playing the Building, as well as an interview with Anne Pasternak, President and Artistic Director of Creative Time, and information on many other public artworks, including Olafur Eliasson’s Waterfalls.
The weight of history will fall on the City of Angels on July 19, when artist Mark Tribe re-presents a speech by César Chávez as part of Creative Time’s Democracy in America: The National Campaign. Taking place at Exposition Park, the same location as the original speech, Tribe’s reenactment highlights the similarities between the problems addressed by Vietnam-era radicalism and activists today. Presented with LACE.
