Event description: 

John Golding (1929–2012) was an abstract painter, though today he is better known as an eminent art historian, teacher, curator, and critic. This documentary presents a life and art in precarious balance, exploring through Golding’s friends, ex-students, and colleagues the turbulent evolution of his painting and the creative tensions that drove him. (Directed by Bruno Wollheim; 2016; not rated; 44 minutes)

This film is shown in conjunction with the exhibition “A Decade of Gifts and Acquisitions,” and will be screened in the Lecture Hall. Seating is limited.
