A ‘Spin’ Through CinemaEvent Details: 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., June 24, Saint Louis University Museum of Art (SLUMA), 3663 Lindell Blvd, St. Louis, MO, 63108-3342
Join us at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art as D.J. Josh Levy spins and weaves classic movie soundtracks with the film-inspired tapestries contained in the museum's current exhibition, "Sun Smith-Foret: Final Cut."
From Scarface to Shaft ... from Ray to the Lone Ranger, more than 30 painted and embellished tapestries, ranging from small pieces to wall-sized installations, represent Smith-Foret's interpretation of classic film and cinema.
Smith-Foret uses the African American textile technique of strip piecing which joins highly contrasting strips, while layering multiple patterning through appliqué and other fabric alterations. The result is compelling imagery that conveys her interpretation of the tone and color of film genres that include Westerns; Women in Film; African-American films; and Global Cinema.
Soundtracks from "Almost Famous;" "Lady Sings the Blues;" "Biggie & Tupac," and many more, set the stage for an evening that is rated "PG," positively great!
