In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Parrish Art Museum in partnership with Hamptons Doc Fest and as part of the Artist’s Lens Series, will present a screening of Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint. 

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world, began in 1906 to create unprecedented, large-scale, colorful, and sensual paintings. The subject of a recent retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value. Interviews with af Klint’s family and friends, artists, historians, and collectors share untold stories that depict a heroine whose pursuit of art, questions of life and fulfillment go beyond the visible.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with artists Dannielle Tegeder and Sharmistha Ray who co-founded Hilma’s Ghost, a feminist artist collective, in 2020. The collective seeks to address existing art historical gaps by cultivating a global network of women, nonbinary, and trans practitioners whose work addresses spirituality. Hilma af Klint’s groundbreaking exhibition at the Guggenheim in 2018 served as a reckoning for art history’s blindspots, especially for women artists considered too ‘mystical’ for the conservative art world.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

Director Halina Dyrschka was born in Berlin, Germany and is active as a director and producer. After studying acting, classical singing, and film production she founded the company Ambrosia AMBROSIA FILM in Berlin. The first film she directed, 9andahalf’s Goodbye was shown at over 40 film festivals worldwide and has won several awards. BEYOND THE VISIBLE – HILMA AF KLINT marks her directorial feature documentary debut and is the first and only film on the Swedish artist Hilma af Klint.

ABOUT HILMA’S GHOST

The collective created the ABSTRACT FUTURES TAROT Deck inspired by af Klint, which was exhibited at the 2021 Armory Show, and organized Cosmic Geometries, an exhibition of intergenerational and intersectional artists that examines the spiritual and aesthetic functions of abstract painting and geometry, currently on view at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. Hilma’s Ghost has produced online workshops attended by over 700 people worldwide.

Brooklyn-based artist/art critic/educator Sharmistha Ray has explored subjective experience through the lens of queerness, language, and memory. They have exhibited their work—which includes drawing, painting, sculpture, video installation, and photography—in solo exhibitions in Mumbai, New York, and Singapore, as well as group exhibitions worldwide. A recipient of the Joan Mitchell M.F.A. Grant with an M.F.A. in Painting from Pratt Institute, they teach in the M.F.A. programs at Carnegie Mellon University and Parsons School of Design.

The work of Dannielle Tegeder, an artist and professor at CUNY Lehman College, has explored abstraction through the lens of systems, architecture, and modernism through her paintings, drawings, large-scale installation and other media, as well as through collaborations with composers, dancers, and writers. In 2020 Tegeder founded The Pandemic Salon, a community-centric online environment that showcases topics related to the pandemic by bringing together creative minds from around the world.
