Films by James Scott, Etchings by David Hockney
This summer, Anita Rogers Gallery will present an exhibition of David Hockney’s 1966 series, Illustrations for Fourteen Poems from C.P. Cavafy, along with daily (Monday-Saturday) screenings of James Scott’s Love’s Presentation (1966), a short film documenting Hockney as he works on the Cavafy etchings. The full suite of etchings will be accompanied by original recordings of Hockney reading the Cavafy poems. The gallery will also host select screenings of other art films by James Scott, including Every Picture Tells a Story (1984) about his father William Scott, The Great Ice Cream Robbery (1971) (featuring Claes Oldenburg with Hannah Wilke) and Richard Hamilton (1969). Showtimes, including weekend and evening screenings, are available here.
