Screening: "Inhabited Painting"

August 31, 2017
Price Auditorium
Free with museum admission, registration required*

Inhabited Painting, a film by Joana Ascensao explores the work of Helena Almeida, an artist who, since the late 60’s, has created a body of work in which she explores the limits of self-representation and the frontiers of different media: painting, drawing, photography and video. The film focuses on the various elements involved in the elaborate creative process through which Helena Almeida constructs her pieces, from her first studies right up to the exhibition of her finished works.

*Museum admission is free for Illinois residents every Thursday, 5:00–8:00—including during this event.
