Jim Dine on Screen
To coincide with the exhibition Jim Dine: The Glyptotek Drawings, the Morgan is screening the following films about the artist's life and work.

Jim Dine
(1970, 28 minutes)
Director: Michael Blackwood

A concentrated look at Jim Dine's work, this film was made during what the artist called his four-year "voluntary exile" in London. Actively at work in his studio on several large collages—some of which include written words and real life objects—Dine talks about his connections to literature, his frequent collaboration with poets, and reads some of his own poetry.

followed by:

Jim Dine: A Self-Portrait on the Walls
(1995, 28 minutes)
Director: Nancy Dine

This remarkable documentary records eight days of intense work and quiet rumination as Dine produces and reflects upon an exhibition of large, transitory, charcoal drawings executed directly on the walls of the Ludwigsburg Kunstverein in Germany. Courtesy of Berkeley Media LLC.
Friday, June 24, 2011, 7 p.m.
