January 26th: John Gutmann Film Screening and Discussion at the CCP, Tucson

In conjunction with the current exhibition of John Gutmann‘s work at the Center for Creative Photography Tucson, a film screening of My Eyes Were Fresh: The Life and Photographs of John Gutmann (2006, 30 minutes) will be shown at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday January 26th, admission is free.

From the CCP website:

“This film by Jane Levy Reed, is an intimate portrait of the artist narrated by Gutmann in a series of filmed interviews and commentaries recorded in the years just before his death in 1998. It profiles his art and life, both of which helped forge a link between the European modernism of the early 20th century and the burgeoning artistic culture of the San Francisco Bay Area in the second half of the century. Jennifer Jenkins, Associate Professor of Media Arts, who teaches film history at the University of Arizona, will introduce the film.”

The John Gutmann exhibition will be on view until January 31, 2010.
