Without Gorky

Tuesday Jun 23, 2015 7:30 PM This is a past program

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, we dedicate 2015 to an exploration of multiple facets of Armenian culture, history, and landscape through film in our series I Am Armenian.

Without Gorky explores the artistic and personal legacy of artist Arshile Gorky (1904–1948) through interviews with family members, archival photographs, and the artist’s own work. A discussion with Kim S. Theriault, author of Rethinking Arshile Gorky, and filmmaker Dr. Carla Garapedian of the Armenian Film Foundation follows the screening. (2011, Dir. C. Spender, 58 min.)

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from the Dream Fund at UCLA. 

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members. 

The Hammer’s digital presentation of its public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
