In Our Time: An Evening of Film with David Lamelas


Museum Lecture Hall

This is a past event

The Getty Research Institute presents the world premiere of David Lamelas's new short film, In Our Time (2018), with scenes filmed at the Getty Center. Time, location, memory, and love play out in front of artist James Ensor's masterpiece, Christ's Entry into Brussels in 1889 (1888). This event will also include a screening of Lamelas's short film, The Invention of Dr. Morel (2000), and a conversation between the artist and curators Kristina Newhouse (University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach) and Glenn Phillips (Getty Research Institute).

Funding for In Our Time has been provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

In Our Time was created in conjunction with the 2017 exhibition David Lamelas: A Life of Their Own, organized by the University Art Museum (UAM) at California State University Long Beach. The film was produced by UAM in partnership with the CSULB Film and Electronic Arts Department.

Additional funding was provided by Ariel Aisiks and the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA).

Major support for David Lamelas: A Life of Their Own was provided through grants from the Getty Foundation.
