TSL Films

n David Hockney at the Royal Academy of Arts — Presented by Exhibition On Screen. Considered Britain’s most popular artist, David Hockney is a global sensation with exhibitions in London, New York, Paris, and beyond. Now entering his 9th decade, Hockney shows absolutely no evidence of slowing down or losing his trademark boldness. Featuring intimate and in-depth interviews with Hockney, this revealing film focuses on two blockbuster exhibitions held in 2012 and 2016 at the Royal Academy of Arts in London. 2017. 1h 25 m.

n Godard Mon Amour — Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) once again affectionately transports moviegoers back to a unique time and place in cinematic history: France, in the late 1960s. Actress Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin) finds herself juggling political protests and artistic challenges in her married life with renowned filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel). As her country undergoes enormous cultural change, so too does Anne’s dynamic with her husband. In French with subtitles. 2018. 1h 47 m.

n Zama — Zama, an officer of the Spanish Crown born in South America, waits for a letter from the King granting him a transfer from the town in which he is stagnating, to a better place. He must ensure that nothing overshadows his transfer. He is forced to accept, submissively, every task entrusted to him by successive Governors who come and go as he stays behind. The years go by and the letter from the King never arrives. When Zama notices everything is lost, he joins a party of soldiers that go after a dangerous bandit. In Spanish with subtitles. 2017. 1h 55 m.

n RBG – Ruth Bader Ginsburg — At the age of 84, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a breathtaking legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But without a definitive Ginsburg biography, the unique personal journey of this diminutive, quiet warrior’s rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans. RBG explores Ginsburg’s exceptional life and career in a revelatory documentary. 2018. 1h37m.

n Godard Mon Amour — Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) once again affectionately transports moviegoers back to a unique time and place in cinematic history: France, in the late 1960s. Actress Anne Wiazemsky (Stacy Martin) finds herself juggling political protests and artistic challenges in her married life with renowned filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard (Louis Garrel). As her country undergoes enormous cultural change, so too does Anne’s dynamic with her husband. In French with subtitles. 2018. 1h 47 m.

n Men and Apparitions • Reading & Talk with Author Lynne Tillman — The time is now, and Ezekiel Hooper Stark is thirty-eight. He’s a cultural anthropologist, an ethnographer of family photographs, a wry speculator about images. From childhood, his own family’s idiosyncrasies, perversities, and pathologies propel Zeke, until love lost sends him spiraling out of control in Europe. Back in the U.S.A., he finds unexpected solace in the image of a notable nineteenth-century relative, Clover Hooper Adams. Zeke embarks on a project, MEN IN QUOTES, focusing his anthropological lens on his own kind: the “New Man,” born under the sign of feminism. All the old models of masculinity are broken. How are you different from your father? Zeke asks his male subjects. What do you expect from women? What does Zeke expect from himself? And what will the reader expect of Zeke—is he a Don Quixote, Holden Caulfield, Underground Man, or Stranger? Kaleidoscopic and encyclopedic, comic, tragic, and philosophical, Men and Apparitions showcases Lynne Tillman not only as a brilliantly original novelist but also as one of our most prominent contemporary thinkers on art, culture, and society. Free admission. Copies of Men and Apparitions and other works by Lynne Tillman will be available for sale at the TSL Book Space. Supper $10 members / $12.50 general. RSVP at 518-822-8100 or fyi@timeandspace.org.

n Strangers on Earth — Europe’s most popular pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago attracts wayfarers of all stripes to walk its ancient paths. One such pilgrim is Dane Johansen, an American cellist who walked the Camino with his instrument on his back, performing music for his fellow pilgrims along the way. Accompanied by the vast landscapes of Northern Spain, the haunting music of J.S. Bach for solo cello (performed by Johansen), and the very personal struggles and joys of the many pilgrims encountered along the way, Strangers on the Earth examines the physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of the concept of “journey” and the vital role it can play as part of the human experience. 2017. 1h 3 6m.

www.helsinkihudson.com

Since her debut in 1992 with “Infamous Angel,” country-folk singer-songwriter Iris DeMent has been regarded in musical circles as an authentic living legend, the last of fourteen children born in a Pentecostal household in Arkansas, who spent her childhood immersed in gospel and traditional country music.

Boasting an uncanny voice that recalls a grittier Emmylou Harris, Iris DeMent’s “Infamous Angel” immediately established her as a major star on the roots-music scene. Its 1994 follow-up, “My Life,” earned a Grammy Award nomination in the Contemporary Folk category, and her 1996 album, “The Way I Should,” which addressed political, as well as personal themes, brought her a second nomination.

Along the way, several of DeMent’s songs have become cultural touchstones. “Let The Mystery Be” found its way to MTV Unplugged as a duet by David Byrne and Natalie Merchant; “Our Town” was played over the farewell scene in the series finale of “Northern Exposure”; Merle Haggard invited her to tour with his legendary band The Strangers and recorded two of her songs; she has recorded and toured extensively with John Prine; and the Coen Brothers featured one of her songs over the closing credits of their 2010 remake of the classic western “True Grit.”

Last fall, Dement received the “Trailblazer” Award from the Americana Music Association (along with Graham Nash and Van Morrison).

518-392-4747

www.artomi.org

Architect Alex Schweder returns to the Architecture Fields at Art Omi for a weekend-long performance in the spinning, tilting, futuristic home ReActor.

ReActor is a 44-foot by 8-foot habitable sculpture that rotates 360-degrees atop a 15-foot concrete column in response to its inhabitants’ movements, exterior forces, and interior conditions, making visible the intimate relationship between architecture and its occupants. The work is a collaboration between architect Alex Schweder and artist Ward Shelley, and was erected in Architecture Field 01 at Art Omi in June 2016. Since its completion, the pair have inhabited ReActor over a series of three durational performances; during these activations, onlookers are invited to observe and interact with the residents as they navigate the ever-shifting structure as it reacts to atmospheric conditions. Schweder has described their approach as “performance architecture,” and stated that “our relationship with our audiences is a bit different from many performance art works in that we have conversations about the work with them.” For this latest performance, Schweder will be joined on Saturday, June 9 by Oberon Sinclair, and on Sunday, June 10 by Sean Anderson.

Each photograph captures a changing moment, a newly bared emotion, an intimate attraction. You feel your way into di Mola’s images.

UnderWhere? Dress Reform Lecture

1 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.

Clermont State Historic Site

1 Clermont Avenue, Germantown

518-537-4240

www.FriendsofClermont.org

The Dress Reform movement of the mid-19th century hoped to liberate women from the most limiting aspects of their clothing. It was symbolized by the adoption of a shorter skirt over loose pants or “bloomers,” but it also encompassed other changes more intimately inside a woman’s layers of clothes. Other reform movements, including the women’s suffrage movement, adopted the Bloomer costume as a representation of their ideals. The reform dress inspired intense controversy, and lead Americans to question gender roles and expression. Join historians Ashley Hopkins-Benton and Kjirsten Gustavson as they uncover these layers of controversy, comparing the differences between fashionable dress and reform dress of the 1850’s and linking them to the social movements that changed women’s lives for generations to come. The talk will be heavily illustrated and include reproduction costumes.

Dallas-based sextet Funky Knuckles brings its R&B-based, jam band fusion to Hudson!

Funky Knuckles plays a groove-based, horn-heavy instrumental music. Each player is a virtuoso on his own, but together they play an adventurous, interlocking jam-based sound that should appeal equally to fans of Phish, Frank Zappa, Pat Metheny, Spyro Gyra, Victor Wooten, Herbie Hancock, Snarky Puppy, and Medeski Martin & Wood.

The group’s genre-defying approach features a melodic line passed around from Kwinton Gray’s keyboards to Phill Aelony’s guitar to the twin horns of Ben Bohorquez and Evan Weiss, propelled by the always funky rhythms laid down by bassist Wes Stephenson and drummer Cedric Moore.

Funky Knuckles plays original compositions and versions of jazz standards with flashes of in-the-moment improvisation that make each show unique and influenced in part by what the audience contributes to the overall vibe.
