Co-presented by O Cinema and Oolite Arts,
Art Films presents a FREE virtual live screening of BEYOND THE VISIBLE: HILMA AF KLINT, followed by a post-film discussion with the film’s director Halina Dyrschka & Oolite Arts President/CEO Dennis Scholl.

THE FILM:

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting. The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse, before her long-delayed rediscovery. Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

POST-FILM Q&A:

To join the post-film Q&A (via Zoom) you’ll need to go HERE as soon as the film ends.

“One of the best films I’ve seen about fine art. It casts an entrancing spell that allows the staggering depth of its subject’s work to consume us, while showing how her trailblazing vision left an unmistakable imprint in over a century of iconic art spanning various mediums, resounding through history like a drop of colored paint in a pitcher of water.”
