Art House Film Series

The Campbellsville University Art Department presents “Art House Film Series” March 14 and 18 and April 10. “Helvetica” will be shown March 14; “Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry” will be shown March 18 and “The Gates” is set for April 10. The films will be shown at 10 a.m. in the Susan Kirkland-Tesseneer Art Studio at the corner of University Drive and North Columbia Avenue. “Helvetica” is a feature-length independent film by Gary Hustwit about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the prolifernation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. "Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry” is quoted as "This compelling documentary explores three years in the life of celebrated Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei, who uses social media and his art to inspire protests against the state, and suffers government persecution for his actions." His work is mostly contemporary in nature but also incorporates ancient artifacts from his culture to make a statement. “The Gates” information follows: "In February, 2005, artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude installed 7,500 arches (gates), curtained with orange cloth that waved and billowed and decked miles of walkways in Central Park. The gates stood for 16 days, the first unfurled by Mayor Bloomberg, who championed the project, giving it the okay after the artists' 25-year quest to gain approval. Archival footage shows pro-and-con debates and various mayors and commissions turning down the project. By the end, the gates installed, the camera travels a winter landscape, orange shining through trees and reflected in ponds. Passers-by, quintessential New Yorkers, express pleasure. Art dwarfs the nay-sayers.” A flier is attached.
