Outdoor Cinema Begins at MASS MoCA on Saturday

From: Rod Bunt <>, Mayor's Office of Tourism

This Saturday, June 25, at 8:30 PM, MASS MoCA will open its outdoor cinema
(with the largest screen in the Berkshires) featuring the projected
drawings of William Kentridge. The shorts will be screened with live
music composed by Philip Miller, who will join us from South Africa to
conduct a string quartet, plus voice, piano, and trumpet.

Kentridge is one of the world's best draftsmen. Using charcoal, markers,
and an eraser, he renders lush drawings, snaps a single frame of film, and
then goes back into the sheet, re-working it, pushing charcoal around and
into the drawing, and then taking a second frame film. The effect is
gorgeous and liquid, masterful in the way that we think of old masters.

Lickety Split and the MASS MoCA bar will be on hand to serve dinners and
drinks. MASS MoCA's Cinema Courtyard is the place to be on a beautiful
summer night.
