Witkin & Witkin: Film Screening
November 20, 2019 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
In conjunction with our current exhibition, JEROME WITKIN: THIS TIME, THIS WORLD ArtRage is pleased to present a community screening of the 2017 Documentary Film Witkin & Witkin which explores the life and work of Jerome Witkin and his twin brother Joel-Peter Witkin.
Witkin & Witkin by Trisha Ziff, explores the worlds of identical twins, Joel-Peter, world famous photographer and Jerome, painter and life long educator. An intensely human film that addresses the philosophy of their practices, their art and personal relationship. We meet the women in their lives who gives us access to their worlds, beyond their images. A film about perception and growing older, two artists working in different media who shared a childhood but whose lives took very different directions. We spend time with them in their studios, in both Syracuse and Albuquerque worlds and realities that couldn’t be less alike. Filmed over 4 years Witkin and Witkin documents the changes they experience as time tells its own distinct and disparate narrative.
Free and open to the public.
