B/D Movie Time this Wed: “Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”

urban_jacksonpollock

 

We continue our month long series of free outdoor screenings at Space 15Twenty this Wednesday, May 20th, with “Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”

 

The screenings are projected on the large outdoor screen located next to the Snack Bar. Seating is limited so arrive early to secure a chair, but if you get there late, no worries you can always sit on the floor or bring your own chair! 

 

“Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”  takes a more tongue-in-cheek look at the inner workings of the stuffy art elite than last week’s screening, “Basquiat.” “Who the…” is seen through the eyes of a beer-drinking, sailor-mouthed woman who may have accidentally purchased a Pollock from a thrift store- and the ridiculous rigamarole she must go through to have it verified.

 

Drinks, snacks and popcorn as usual are available at Snack Bar!

 

“Who the #$&% Is Jackson Pollock?”- Wed, May 20
8:00pm
Space 15twenty
1520 N. Cahuenga Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90028

 

See more Beautiful/Decay Movie Times for the month of May after the jump!

Anvil

Okay Documentary lovers I just saw this doc last night and I loved it. Imagine Spinal Tap meets Forest Gump! It’s still in select theaters so if you can go see it on the big screen.

 

 

In the early 1980s, the Canadian metal band Anvil wrote the thrash blueprint for followers like Anthrax, Metallica, and Slayer. While those bands went on to become metal titans, Anvil faded into obscurity–so much that decades later, the band’s core members–guitarist Steve “Lips” Kudlow and drummer Robb Reiner–work menial day-jobs even as they continue to churn out little-heard records and dream of rock-star success. Director Sacha Gervasi (who was once a roadie for the band) chronicles the duo’s efforts to regain their ’80s glory in the funny and touching documentary ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL.

My Kid Could Paint That

Another riveting documentary from my files. If any of you hope to have a genius artist baby in the future you’ll want to watch this doc.

 

 

 

 

My Kid Could Paint That is a 2007 documentary film by director Amir Bar-Lev (who also directed 2000′s Fighter). The movie follows the early artistic career of Marla Olmstead, a young girl from Binghamton, NY who gains fame first as a child prodigy painter of abstract art, and then becomes the subject of controversy concerning whether she truly completed the paintings herself or did so with her parents’ assistance and/or direction. The film was bought by Sony Pictures Classics in 2007 after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival. Marla’s father, an amateur painter, describes how Marla watches him paint, wants to help, and is given her own canvas and supplies.

PJ Richardson from Laundrymat: KDU X Diesel “Only The Brave”

Laundrymat

 

We have images of PJ Richardson‘s submission for the Diesel x Keystone Design Union (KDU) “Only The Brave” Exhibition, which opened on April 30th in NYC. I love how he juxtaposes gentle greens, salmon pinks, and loud reds with equally vibrant, downright playful monsters and type. All of these visual elements make this piece particularly mesmerizing!
