Kunstkino Abend - Beauty is Embarassing: The Wayne White story

  • Jun 27, 2013 · 7:00 PM


Join Art Tours, Etc. for the next installment of Kunstkino Abend featuring the first Swiss screening of Beauty is Embarassing: The Wayne White Story. A short discussion will follow. Drinks, popcorn, and other appetizers will be provided.

Kunstkino Abend is a program that brings to the local public art documentaries previously not screened in Swiss art spaces, and supports independent filmmakers through screening proceeds.


About the film:

Beauty Is Embarrassing is a funny, irreverent, joyful and inspiring documentary featuring the life and current times of one of America’s most important artists, Wayne White.

Raised in the mountains of Tennessee, Wayne White started his career as a cartoonist in New York City. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the TV show, Pee-wee’s Playhouse, which led to more work designing some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. Most recently, his word paintings, which feature pithy and often sarcastic text statements crafted onto vintage landscape paintings, have made him a darling of the fine art world.

At its core, Beauty Is Embarrassing is a reminder that we should all follow our passion. It is those creative impulses that will lead us to where we need to go.


When: Thursday, June 27, at 7pm

Where: Bob Gysin Gallery, Ausstellungsstr. 24, Zurich
