  • Marcel Duchamp: tant Donns

  • Aug 14, 2009 to Nov 29, 2009
  • Location: Philadelphia, USA Philadelphia Museum of Art
  • Description: tant Donns, Duchamps last major work, has been described by Jasper Johns as é’“the strangest work of art in any museum. What at first looks like an boarded-up wooden door is actually a tableau visible only through two peep holes, which reveal a half-hidden naked woman in a landscape. Duchamp worked on the piece in secret for 20 years, while even his friends thought he had given up his art, and it was only revealed to the public when it was posthumously installed in the museum. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of its first display, and in memory of the late director Anne dHarnoncourt, who oversaw the original installation as a 25-year-old assistant, the museum has organised this show of 80 studies, photographs, erotic objects and other documents.

  • Location: MoCADA
  • Description: Their stories are numerous, some similar and others flavored by particular struggles in specific sites of discontent. Overall, their attitudes are of stubborn resilience, hope, and survival in environments desperate for their labor but resentful of their presence. With over 100 photographs and videos from Spain, Portugal, Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Czech and Britain, the exhibition, organized by NYU's Africana Studies Department, follows some remarkably resilient immigrants on their uncertain sojourn on makeshift, intermittently powered fishing boats from West Africa, through the rigors of European immigration control, into the interstices of European society. These works of art are created by award winning photographers, photo-journalists, and human rights activists all over Europe including Juan Medina (Spain), Alfredo Muňoz de Oliveira (Portugal), Francesco Cocco, Angelo Aprile, Elisa Cozzarini, Marco Ambrosi, Matteo Danesin, Aldo Sodoma and Stefano Renna (Italy).

The story of ARAYA is the stuff of legend: a half-century ago, this gorgeous tone poem of the otherworldly salt marshes of Venezuela dazzled Cannes, sharing a prize with Hiroshima, Mon Amour and earning its writer-director (making her feature debut) comparisons to Flaherty, Visconti and Rossellini. Yet distributors were unmoved, so it languished in obscurity, unseen and all but forgotten. Now, stunningly restored for its 50th anniversary — and theatrical premiere — by the champion of such lost classics as I Am Cuba, The Exiles and Killer

  • JOAN OF ARC OF MONGOLIA by Ulrike Ottinger

  • Oct 11, 2009 from 3:30pm to 6:00pm
  • Location: Anthology Film Archive
  • Description: 1989, 165 minutes, 35mm. In German with English subtitles. With Delphine Seyrig and Irm Hermann.“[Delphine Seyrig is] a cultivated lady anthropologist traveling on the Trans-Siberian railroad, where her companions include a renowned Yiddish tenor (Micky Katz), a German schoolteacher (Fassbinder regular Irm Hermann), a campy all-girl klezmer trio, and a young girl in search of adventure. When, mid-steppe, the train is halted by Mongolian tribeswomen on ponies who kidnap the female passengers, the journey assumes a new dimension. Visually splendid and emotionally resonant, with knock-out musical numbers, this is both a lesbian epic and a love story between a filmmaker and her medium.” –Leslie Camhi, VILLAGE VOICEDir. Ulrike Ottinger (1989). Way too long and just short of fabulous, Ulrike Ottinger’s central Asian extravaganza is still a one-of-a-kind vision—as steeped in campy exotica and excessive mise-en-scene as early ‘30s Sternberg.THE VOICE
