Weekend Preview

I realize I singlehandedly buried the weekend preview so I've bumbed it back to the top. Don't forget what promises to be the best-birthday-bash ever!!!

Wednesday, December 13

5:30 - 6:30 pm - iMOCA 101: Collecting Contemporary Art. Free.

Please join us at iMOCA for a conversation with Lisa Freiman, Curator of Contemporary Art at the IMA, as we discuss how museums add to their permanent collections and purchase from temporary exhibitions at a time when the art market is more expensive then ever. We will also be discussing the trend of making private collections public, bypassing the traditional museum system and potential problems this may cause.

Thursday, December 14

7 pm - Nikki S. Lee at the IMA for a screening of a.k.a. Nikki S. Lee. Members/students free. Others - 5 bucks.

At 7 pm in the DeBoest Lecture Hall at the IMA, South Korean-born artist Nikki S. Lee, known for transforming her identity and becoming a subject in her own art, will attend the second U.S. screening of her latest project, a film entitled a.k.a. Nikki S. Lee, at IMA. The film premiered in the United States at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York in October.

iMOCA continues it's series of contemporary/classic films with holiday favorite White Christmas.

White Christmas
(1954) ushers in the holiday season with lots of song and dance numbers, spectacular color, and patriotic messages. After leaving the Army after W.W.II, Bob Wallace and Phil Davis team up to become a top entertainers. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to a pair of beautiful sisters Betty and Judy. When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, is the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General out of financial trouble.
