Artist Babette Mangolte returns in person for a second night of films that further explore the range of her artistic output. Since the 1970s Mangolte has filmed and photographed dance and performance, in many cases producing documents that have become primary in the recollection and retelling of these works. She has recorded the choreographies of Trisha Brown, Yvonne Rainer, Steve Paxton, Simone Forti, Lucinda Child, and others. With Chantal Akerman, Mangolte filmed Pina Bausch in One Day Pina Asked… (1984). Mangolte’s work captures the process and performance of dance, the dailiness of practice and the rigor and poetry of the form.

Tonight, Mangolte presents two films on dance in which art is a central figure. Nancy Graves’s remarkable set appears in Lateral Pass, a choreography by Trisha Brown. Steve Paxton improvises in response to sculpture in Steve Paxton at Dia:Beacon. The remaining films in the program examine artists working in other mediums. Je, Nous, I or Eye, Us is an essay in which the photographer and her subjectivity is the subject. Here, Mangolte reexamines footage from her 1977 film The Camera: Je or La Camera: I. Edward Krasiński’s Studio is a portrait of a studio and the two artists who shared it, Henryk Staźewski and Edward Krasiński.

Curated by Kate Brown. Individual film notes by Babette Mangolte. FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE! LA FILMFORUM TICKET PRICING APPLIES. More info:
