Modernism + Film: Levitated Mass
LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART
THURSDAY, JUNE 21 AT 6 P.M.Buy Tickets
Levitated Mass is Doug Pray's new documentary about a two-story tall, 340-ton, granite boulder that was moved from a quarry in Riverside to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and mounted atop the walls of a gigantic slot in the earth. The massive artwork, titled Levitated Mass, is the latest 'land sculpture' by one of America's most exciting and misunderstood artists, Michael Heizer. Heizer's sculpture references the expanse of art history -- from ancient traditions of megalithic stones to modern forms of abstract geometries and cutting-edge feats of engineering.
Prior to the screening, UNC College of Arts + Architecture Associate Professor Greg Snyder will provide opening remarks.
An event reception with a full bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.
