STILLS: A SELECTION FROM THE MARIELUISE HESSEL COLLECTION

June 14, 1998 - September 6, 1998
CCS Bard Galleries

“Stills: A Selection from the Marieluise Hessel Collection” brings together thirty-eight works that relate to the imagetic, linguistic, and technical universe generated by the advent of cinema. It displays works that involve elements of cinematic memory present in the contemporary imaginary that give rise to a plastic language or image. The exhibition demonstrates, through paintings, sculpture, photographs, and objects, how the imaginary of some artists fuses in a productive dialogue with the repertory of images, cultural signs, and linguistic and technological devices generated by cinema, while simultaneously confronting the transformations that it caused to perceptions and representations of humanity and the world. This exhibition is an expanded version of Fotogramas: art e cinema na colecão Marieluise Hessel presented at two venues in Brazil, the Centro Cultural Light in Rio de Janeiro and Museu de Arte Moderna São Paulo. Curator: Ivo Mesquita
