Evening Tour, Lecture, & Film @ SDMA

  • January 4, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This was such a fun combo of entertainment at the San Diego Art Museum in October that we've decided to do it again! Just $8 ($5 for museum members) gets you:

6:00 - Private tour of "Behold, America!"
7:00 - Pre-film lecture with reserved seats
8:00 - "Do the Right Thing," directed by Spike Lee

We are limited to 30 people for the tour, so please be mindful of your RSVP and cancel if you know you can't make it. You will be responsible for purchasing your own ticket at the door. Thanks in advance for your help!

More info on the exhibit and the movie:

Behold, America! includes works from the colonial period to the present that together tell a cohesive and dynamic story of the history of art in the United States. The exhibition is a part of an innovative collaboration between three renowned museums: the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The San Diego Museum of Art, and the Timken Museum of Art.  The exhibition will be presented as three distinct but related shows at the three institutions. The works at the Timken Museum of Art will focus on the concept of Forms and include traditional still-lifes by Raphaelle Peale and more contemporary works by Sam Gilliam. The San Diego Museum of Art will host the Figures component of the exhibition featuring portraits by John Singleton Copley, Cindy Sherman, and John Currin. At the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego works related to the notion of Frontiers will showcase art created by Robert Irwin, Ann Hamilton, Albert Bierstadt, Asher B. Durand, and Eastman Johnson.

'Do the Right Thing,' Spike Lee’s bold and nuanced work about the role of race in our country, examines American identity in conjuction with Behold, America! While its debut in 1989 was supposed to cause race riots according to some, the film instead won multiple Academy Award nominations and offered a poetic, thoughtful, if not intense look at the structure of American communities.  Most importantly, Lee’s fictional story about one afternoon in Bedford-Stuyvensant continues to resonate and prove relevant to the conversation on race in this country.

    The tour of American artists installation was enjoyable. Jericho Brown, poet, such a wonderful reading- I didn't even realize there was a poet reading, so that was a great surprise.

    I'd be interested in attending just to watch the film & lecture.

      Ricardo, you may just attend the lecture & film, that's fine. Feel free to sit in the reserved SDCC section with us if you like. :)
