The Film Gallery,
43 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin,
75010 Paris, France
Programmed to celebrate the centennial of Jonas Mekas, Jonas Mekas 100!, the exhibition “To New York With Love” presents 21 offset lithographs and the screening of the film As I Was Moving Ahead Occasionally I Saw Brief Glimpses Of Beauty, 2000, 288 min by Jonas Mekas.
The 21 offset lithographs, “To New York With Love”, is a sensitive tribute to the city, a gift of poetic reminiscences to its viewers. Mekas’s images – which range from seemingly banal pictures of teens playing in Central Park to Rockefeller Center’s bedazzled Christmas tree – retain the compositional form of the film strip.
The opening of the exhibition and the presentation of the Jonas Mekas book “I Seem to Live: The New York Diaries, 1969–2011: Volume 2” will take place on 14 April, at the Film Gallery at 6pm.
