Joseph Cornell Films
Join us the afternoon of Friday, October 12, for a program of experimental films by the remarkable and entrancing assemblage artist Joseph Cornell. Dali once remarked admiringly, "My idea for a film is exactly that!...It is as if he had stolen it from my subconscious." Sunday's program, the first of three presented at SFMOMA in conjunction with their Cornell retrospective, includes the celebrated Rose Hobart (1936, 19 min.), an assemblage of edited footage from the 1931 B movie East of Borneo. Also on the program: Cotillion (1940, 8 min.), The Midnight Party (1940, 3 min.), The Children's Party (1940, 8 min.), The Aviary (1954. 11 min.), Nymphlight (1957, 7 min.), A Legend for Fountains (1957/1965, 17 min.), Angel (1957, 3 min.), and Gnir Rednow (with Stan Brakhage, 1955-late 1960s, 6 min.).

(151 Third St., at Mission) at 3 pm.
