Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche

Jul 18 2019 - 7:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Live in HD Flex Subscription

1918.  As the roar of the First World War cannons is dying out, in Vienna, the heart of Central Europe, a golden age comes to an end.

It is the time of the Vienna Secession, a magical art movement formed in the late 1890s for art, literature and music, in which new ideas were circulated, Freud discovered the drives of the psyche and women began to claim their independence.  It was a movement that marked a new era outside the confines of academic tradition.

At the heart of Secession were artists Gustav Klimt and his protégé and dear friend Egon Schiele.

Taking place across five stunning exhibitions with never-before-experienced access, Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche recounts this extraordinary moment in art history. 

This cinematic production provides an in-depth examination of images of extraordinary visual power: from the eroticism of Klimt's mosaic-like works, to the anguished and raw work of the young Schiele in his magnetic nudes and contorted figures against the backdrop of nocturnal Vienna, full of masked balls and dreams imbued with sexuality. 

The production runs approximately one hour, 20 minutes.

Gauguin in Tahiti - Paradise Lost

Oct 17 2019 - 7:00pm

General Admission $15, $10 Students, $116 Live in HD Flex Subscription

Gauguin in Tahiti - Paradise Lost traces the legendary life story of Paul Gauguin, who left France for Tahiti feverishly in search of deep immersions into lush nature, for feelings, visions and colors, ever purer and brighter.

Audiences join this journey from Tahiti to American museums including New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C, and Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, where Gauguin's finest masterpieces are now preserved. 

Gauguin in Tahiti - Paradise Lost takes us on the trail of a story that has become myth. Through Tahiti and the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia, we experience the landscapes that inspired Gauguin, in the places where he built houses with bamboo and leaves, and discovered light and colors that changed his painting forever. 

The production runs approximately one hour, 30 minutes.
