Philip Guston: A Life Lived

A film by Michael Blackwood

Sunday April 26, 2pm
$8/$5 WAAM members
Late in life, Guston looks back over a career that originated in social realism during the 1930s, moved to the center of Abstract Expressionism, and culminated in a return to figuration. Filmed at his retrospective in San Francisco and at his Woodstock studio, where Guston is seen painting, the artist speaks candidly about his philosophy of painting and the psychological motivation for his work.
