Louise Lawler will present A Movie Will Be Shown Without the Picture in conjunction with her exhibition WHY PICTURES NOW. This influential work was first staged in 1979 at the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, California. The artist never specifies which film she has selected, only that it will be projected without its image; this altered cinematic event will feature a different film screening each time.
