Art and a Movie: Never Look Away

03:00 pm to 07:00 pm
Eskenazi Museum of Art at Indiana University

Art and a Movie dives into the intersection of art and film. Enjoy a gallery talk at the museum then watch Never Look Away at IU Cinema.
Pre-screening Gallery Talk:

Richter in Focus

3 pm – Free, no ticket required

Eskenazi Museum of Art, Featured Exhibition Gallery, first floor

Nan Brewer, the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will discuss a unique, hand-painted color photograph by Gerhard Richter in the exhibition Re/New: Recent Acquisitions by Contemporary Artists.

Never Look Away (2018)

4 p.m. at IU Cinema

Free, but ticketed

Get tickets here.

This “biopic” gained international notoriety for its many film awards and its charged relationship to the life of the German artist Gerhard Richter. While Richter publicly disavowed the film, the director acknowledges that it was inspired by his interviews with the artist. The result is a powerful depiction of the creative process in the face of horror and hardship. In this case, the story tracks the systematic murder (termed “euthanasia” by the Nazi regime) of people with mental illness during the Holocaust and the subsequent implications on the artist’s family. While both a moving epic about the power of love and art to help come to terms with painful memories, it also offers interesting insights into the meaning of art in totalitarian regimes, the effects of capitalism and individualism, and the practice of art education. In German and Russian with English subtitles. Contains explicit content, including violence, scenes depicting suicide, and sexual situations.

Janis Ian & Livingston Taylor

08:00 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater

Now in her fifth decade of writing songs and performing, Janis received her most recent Grammy nomination in 2016 for the self-produced Patience & Sarah, an audio book she produced and co-narrated with the actress Jean Smart (Designing Women). This makes a total of 10 nominations in 8 different categories, a record for a solo artist whose first nomination came at the age of 16 for her debut album, Janis Ian.

Ian’s concert tours have sold out in every country she’s visited and her songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as John Mellencamp, Amy Grant, Diane Schuur, and Joan Baez. Janis has dueted with Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Mel Torme and, most recently, Trevor Sewell. Her single with Sewell, released only in the UK, jumped up the jazz charts, again reminding us of the diversity in a career that saw Ian on the cover of Downbeat at 16, featured in Melody Maker at 26, honored by the Grammy Hall of Fame twice, receiving Publisher’s Weekly and Kirkus Reviews picks for her children’s book The Tiny Mouse, and continuing to expand and move forward with plans for several more books and a new album in the works.

Livingston Taylor’s career as a professional musician has spanned over 50 years, encompassing performance, songwriting, and teaching. Described as “equal parts Mark Twain, college professor, and musical icon, Livingston maintains a performance schedule of more than a hundred shows a year, delighting audiences with his charm and vast repertoire of his 22 albums and popular classics,” Livingston has written top-40 hits recorded by his brother James Taylor and has appeared with Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Fleetwood Mac, and Jimmy Buffet. He is equally at home with a range of musical genres – folk, pop, gospel, jazz – and from upbeat storytelling and touching ballads to full orchestra performances. In addition to his performance schedule, Livingston has been a full professor at Berklee College of Music for 30 years, passing on the extensive knowledge gained from his long career on the road to the next generation of musicians. Liv is an airplane-flying, motorcycle-riding, singing storyteller, delighting audiences with his charm for over 50 years.
