JEFFERSON PRESENTS: Stan Brakhage

Saturday, August 23
8 PM, Total program length is approximately 120 minutes.
Cost: FREE
All films projected in silent 8mm film, in color and black and white.
 

Local experimental film exhibitors Jefferson Presents collaborates with the Mattress Factory in assembling a very special outdoor free screening of 8mm films by recently departed film legend Stan Brakhage (1933-2003). Considered the most influential American experimental filmmaker, Brakhage redefined celluloid film as a poetic artist's medium, about as far removed from conventional Hollywood cinema as is possible. This program will be projected in the original 8mm home movie format and will feature many films from the SONGS cycle created in the mid-late 1960's. Each of Brakhage's SONGS are miniature virtuoso cinema spectacles that contain layered, exploding images of the filmmaker's family, friends and landscape around his remote Colorado home and serve to construct a personal mythology of the filmmaker's life.

 

MEMBERS BRUNCH
AT THE MF

Due to the holiday the museum will not host the member's brunch for August. Members please join us for the FREE brunch on September 28 from 11 AM to 1 PM

 

The Dwell De LA Espada Library
September 5 through November 3

As part of a new program to bring furniture out of the showroom, and into the world, De La Espada has teamed up with Dwell Magazine and the Mattress Factory.

De La Espada has an affinity for solid wood and an ability to create furniture that is at once modern and traditional, breathing warmth into sleek, modern environments. By placing the furniture at the Mattress Factory, it provides a place where visitors can rest their feet, learn more about the exhibits, catch up on the latest issue of Dwell or just have a chat with a friend. It is a way of bringing the comfort of home to the grandeur of a culturally rich museum.

Please visit the museum's lobby September 5, through November 3 to experience the De La Espada furniture first hand.
