FRAME TO FRAME: WHERE FILM MEETS ART

With Guest Curator of Film Carlos Valladares

Frame to Frame is a film series that places movies in dialogue with paintings. This year, guest curator, Carlos Valladares paired film with pieces in the exhibition FRESH: New Directions in Contemporary Art that represent the newest works added to Alice Walton’s Art Bridges Collection.

FRESH: New Directions in Contemporary Art bravely challenges issues of identity, culture, media and overall aesthetic approach, resulting in fantastical revelations of the visual art vernacular. Some of these artists not only paved the way for newer approaches, many of them are still innovating within the genres in which they impacted so greatly.

The cinema is the quintessential artistic medium of the 20th century; it is the meeting point of literature, poetry, theater, painting, photography, essay, music, dance. Yet those who look at, make, or study movies have a tendency to segregate it from the other arts. This curated selection is meant to place a diverse array of films — by Barbara Loden, Samuel Fuller, and Kevin Jerome Everson, among others — in conversation with some of the most vital painters, sculptors, and video artists of our contemporary moment.

Frame to Frame is guest curated by Carlos Valladares, a writer, critic, and curator based in New York City. He has written for Gagosian Quarterly, n+1, the San Francisco Chronicle, and others. He received his Bachelor's from Stanford University in Film and American Studies, and is currently a doctoral candidate in Film and Art History at Yale, studying French cinema of the 1960s. He has taught on such topics as Latin American film and literature, the French New Wave, screenwriting, Classical Hollywood, psychoanalysis, and U.S. history through cinema. He is currently working on his feature film debut.
