Asheville Art Museum : What You See Is What You See: Documentary Films of American Abstract Artists
Jan 28 all-day

Asheville Art Museum :

What You See Is What You See: Documentary Films of American Abstract Artists
Tuesday, January 6 – Sunday, March 15, 2015

As part of the Museum’s commitment to new media and education through film, we have curated a series of art house documentaries that intimately explore the lives and careers of several artists represented in the exhibition What You See Is What You See: American Abstraction After 1950. These films, which range in length and documentary style, were created by independent filmmakers and serve as serious artistic and, at times, experimental works. Documentary films, strictly speaking, are non-fictional, factual works of art, sometimes known as cinema verite.
