Film: Chuck Close, by Marion Cajori

Image still from Chuck Close, a film by Marion Cajori

Please note, the Museum will be closed on January 5 because of inclement weather and the evening program has been cancelled.

An astounding portrait of one of the world's leading contemporary painters, Chuck Close depicts the life and work of an artist who has reinvented portraiture. Close photographs his subjects, blows up the image to gigantic proportions, divides it into a detailed grid and then uses a complex set of colors and patterning to reconstruct each face. The film allows the wonderfully articulate artist to illuminate his methodology and features his friends and colleagues, including Brice Marden, Robert Storr, Dorothea Rockburne, Philip Glass, Arne Glimcher, Kiki Smith, Elizabeth Murray, Alex Katz, and Kirk Varnedoe. Close's work is currently featured in the exhibition, From Lens to Eye To Hand, Photorealism 1969 to Today.

The screening will be followed by a talk by Terrie Sultan about Close and his work.

2007, NR, 119 minutes
