|A River Changes Course
Wednesday, June 12, 7:00 p.m., Theater 2
2013. Cambodia. Directed by Kalyanee Mam. Mam’s second documentary feature follows three families in rural Cambodia as they struggle for survival as their livelihoods are threatened by ever-increasing industrial development. With a lightness of touch, Mam delivers a heavy blow—though it is never made explicit, the imminent destruction of natural resources looms large, especially for children on the brink of adulthood who find themselves facing frighteningly precarious futures. In Cambodian; English subtitles. 83 min. Introduced by the filmmaker.
|Claes Oldenburg: The Street and The Store
Claes Oldenburg: Mouse Museum/Ray Gun Wing
Through August 5, 2013
Claes Oldenburg’s audacious, witty, and profound depictions of everyday objects have earned him a reputation as one of the most important artists of the 20th century. This exhibition examines the beginnings of Oldenburg’s extraordinary career with an in-depth look at his first two major bodies of work: The Street (1960) and The Store (1961–64). During this intensely productive period Oldenburg redefined the relationship between painting and sculpture and between subject and form.
