Poussin Projected: A Screening of Contemporary Dance Films


Harold M. Williams Auditorium

This is a past event

See three newly commissioned dance films by leading LA-based choreographers Chris Emile, Ana María Alvarez, and Micaela Taylor. Their dynamic works complement the exhibition Poussin and the Dance and respond to the French artist’s intricate depictions of dramatic scenes, richly colored textiles, enigmatic landscapes, and powerful bodies in motion that radiate celebration or despair. The screening is followed by a discussion and Q&A with choreographers Chris Emile and Ana María Alvarez, delving into their processes and inspiration.

After the screening and talk, join a celebratory reception with light bites and drinks. Poussin and the Dance is on view in the Museum's Exhibitions Pavilion, Upper Level.
