An Evening with Candy Kugel
Monday, April 23, 2018, 7:00 p.m.
In Candy Kugel’s new film I, Candy (2018), the process of deconstructing a childhood drawing triggers the artist’s reflections on a personal history with anti-Semitism, political activism, and life choices affected by luck and determination. Displaying an encyclopedic range of animation techniques with remarkable dexterity, I, Candy is a testament to Kugel’s pioneering 45-year career in the field. Animation artist and historian John Canemaker joins Kugel to discuss her legacy as a woman artist in the traditionally male business of animation.
