Monday, October 13, the San Francisco Art Institute hosts a screening of Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band (2013), followed by a conversation between the Los Angeles-based painter and musician and the film’s writer and director, Tamar Halpern. Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band documents seven years of Foulkes’ life and work, from the age of 70 to 77, with a focus on formal particularities of the artist’s work and its evolution, as well as on his engagements with external entities—galleries, museums, and collectors—and the effects of these external influences on his practice. With commentary by Dennis Hopper and George Herms, the film explores Foulkes’ artistic practice through an intimate look at his processes, public engagements, and personal relationships.
The screening begins Monday, October 13, at 7:30 pm.
