FILM SCREENING & TALKBACK
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to be among the first to experience film, visual art, and community in The Apollo’s new spaces at the revitalized Victoria Theater.
Dive into the world of art and activism through the extraordinary journey of visual artist, David Hammons. The Melt Goes On Forever: The Life & Times of David Hammons (2022) is a groundbreaking documentary that chronicles the singular career of the elusive African-American artist from Watts rebellion era ’60s L.A. to global art world prominence today. Hammons’ category-defying practice – rooted in a deep critique of American society and the elite art world – is in the words of one art critic “an invitation to confront the fissures between races” as the artist seeks to challenge normative ideas of culture to envision a new one for the 21st century.
Following the screening stay for a talkback with filmmakers Judd Tully and Harold Crooks and Apollo New Works artist Alex Harsley whose work will be on display in The Apollo’s Laura and Frank Baker gallery in The Victoria Theater.
The Melt Goes On Forever: The Life & Times of David Hammons is a part of The Apollo’s Winter 2024 season.
