Film Premiere of "Women Art Revolution' comes to New Zealand

Film Premiere of "Women Art Revolution' comes to New Zealand

April 3rd 2014

The premiere of a wonderful doco on the rise of the feminist art movement in the States, 'Women Art Revolution' is being screened by the Auckland Women's Centre.

An entertaining and revelatory "secret history" of Feminist Art, Women Art Revolution, deftly illuminates this under-explored movement through conversations, observations, archival footage and works of visionary artists, historians, curators and critics.

Leonie Morris, Centre Manager of the Auckland Women’s Centre said it was “An insider portrait of the women who made the movement, giving them space to finally have their voices heard”

For more than forty years, filmmaker Lynn Hershman Leeson collected a plethora of interviews with her contemporaries—and shaped them into an intimate portrayal of their fight to break down barriers facing women both in the art world and society at large.

W.A.R. features Miranda July, The Guerilla Girls, Yvonne Rainer, Judy Chicago, Marina Abramovic, Yoko Ono, Cindy Sherman, Barbara Kruger, B. Ruby Rich, Ingrid Sischy, Carolee Schneemann, Miriam Schapiro, Marcia Tucker and countless other groundbreaking figures.

$10 from each ticket sold will go towards supporting the long-term sustainability of The Auckland Women's Centre.

Where: Capitol Cinema, 610 Dominion Road, Balmoral, Auckland
When: Sunday the 13th of April at 7.30pm (Doors open at 7)
Tickets: $20 or $25 with a glass of wine or ice cream. Proceeds go to supporting the long term sustainability of our Women's Centre.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
