This is Modern Art – documentary film series & talk-back
This six-part film series written and presented by the English art critic Matthew Collings won several awards.  It is popular both because of its sometimes jokey and sometimes thoughtful explanations of the work and  attitude of a new wave of artists.  Collings’ witty and irreverent, though  clearly highly informed, commentary style enhance its educational value.
Each program will be followed by a talk-back session. Suggested donation per program: $5.00.
