Philip Guston: A Life Lived
Sunday, Aug 18 | Film 2–3pm; Talk 3:10–4:30pm
Narrated by the artist, Philip Guston: A Life Lived was filmed as the artist organized his 1980 retrospective at SFMOMA. Mixing footage shot in San Francisco and at the artist’s Woodstock studio, this film captures Guston speaking candidly about his philosophy of painting and life (58 min, 1981). Following the film, poet and art scholar Bill Berkson discusses Guston’s work in the context of the exhibition Beyond Belief: 100 Years of the Spiritual in Modern Art. Berkson will also share personal stories of a longtime professional and personal relationship with the artist.
