Corita Kent believed that film was the most important medium of her generation. Throughout the 1960s, she attended movies, showed films in her art classes, and followed the filmic careers of her contemporaries.

Join us for a film series related to our special exhibition Corita Kent and the Language of Pop, on view through January 3, 2016.

This third installment includes films that embody the political activism of Kent’s time:

Bruce Conner, Report (1967; 13 min.)
Bruce Conner, Television Assassination (1963/1995; 14 min.)
Paul Sharits, Piece Mandala/End War (1966; 5 min.)
Andy Warhol, Since (1966; 67 min.)

The other installments in the series are Screening the Screenprint, on October 18, featuring films that document the very different screenprinting practices of Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, and Kent; and Salvation at the Supermarket, on November 15, which features films related to the presentation and consumption of food, a prevalent theme in pop art of the 1960s.

The event will be held in Menschel Hall, Lower Level.
