FILM: Art is... the Permanent Revolution (First Screening)
Thursday, April 7, 2022 - 4:30 PM
Ever since the invention of the woodcut in the 1400s, artists have never stopped cutting, etching and drawing their responses to events—and they have often been punished for it. In THE PERMANENT REVOLUTION, three contemporary artists and a master printer join the tradition of printmakers who have depicted the human condition. Featured among the more than 300 works shown are those by Rembrandt, Goya, Daumier, Kollwitz, Dix, Masereel, Grosz and Picasso. While their stirring graphics sweep by, the making of an etching, a woodcut and a lithograph unfolds before our eyes as the living artists join in social protest.
This film screening takes place at the Magic Lantern Cinemas, Ketchum at 4:30pm.
