Film on Gorky to Be Shown at Hammer Museum


LOS ANGELES — On Tuesday, June 23, the Hammer Museum, on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) will show the film “Without Gorky,” as part of its “I Am Armenian” series.

“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 Carla Garapedian follows the screening. (2011, Dir. C. Spender, 58 min.)

The program is free. The film will be shown at the museum’s Billy Wilder Theater. Tickets are required and available at the Box Office one hour before the program. Early arrival is recommended.

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