Join us for a film screening and Q&A with Turner Prize-winning artist Simon Starling. We will present Project for a Masquerade (Hiroshima), which documents the making of a multimedia installation about the early days of nuclear energy development and the monument designed by Henry Moore commemorating its discovery; and At Twilight, a film that takes as its inspiration W.B. Yeats's play At the Hawk's Well. The presentation of these films will be accompanied by live music of Joshua Abrams and Natural Information Society.
This event is part of "The Arts and the Nuclear Age" lecture series, co-sponsored by the Franke Institute for the Humanities and the Humanities Division. Presented by the Arts, Science + Culture Initiative in partnership with the Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry, Film Studies Center, Logan Center for the Arts, Department of Visual Arts, and the Franke Institute for the Humanities.
