Narrated by the artist, Philip Guston: A Life Lived was filmed as the artist organized his 1980 retrospective at SFMOMA.

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.
