Artists on Film by Lana Jokel
Lana Jokel’s many documentaries on modern and contemporary art and artists include films about Larry Rivers, Claes Oldenburg, Howard Kanovitz, and Elizabeth Strong-Cuevas, as well as two studies of Chinese contemporary art.
“The Way It Goes,” a film about the life and creative process of Nathan Slate Joseph, who cuts, bends, and welds rusted sheets of steel into vibrant shapes and wall reliefs, will be shown Thursday at 7 at the John Jermain Memorial Library in Sag Harbor. Ms. Jokel and Mr. Joseph will be present for a discussion after the screening. Reservations have been requested for the free program.
And then on Monday, Ms. Jokel’s 1973 film “Andy Warhol” will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Southampton Arts Center. Through exchanges with Philip Johnson, Barbara Rose, and other art world luminaries, it shows Warhol at his most talkative, holding forth on life, society, money, and art. A discussion between Ms. Jokel and Bob Colacello, former editor of Warhol’s Interview magazine, will follow. Tickets are $15.
Both programs are presented in partnership with the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival.
