Description

**PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A VIRTUAL SCREENING ONLY AND WILL NOT BE TAKING PLACE AT OUR SOUTH BEACH THEATER ... All attendees must RSVP before 4:00pm on 5/13 to participate.**

Co-presented by O Cinema and Oolite Arts, Art Films presents a FREE virtual live screening of BEYOND THE VISIBLE: HILMA AF KLINT, followed by a post-film discussion with the film’s director Halina Dyrschka & Oolite Arts President/CEO Dennis Scholl.

 

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.
