Atlanta Contemporary (@acac) Screens "Painters Painting" as part of Painters Panting exhibit

It is only right that the Atlanta Contemporary's Painters Panting exhibit—inspired by the Emilio de Antonio’s 1972 documentary Painters Painting chronicling the evolution of two distinctly American art movements from 1940-1970: Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art— should include a screening of the film itself.

Painter's Painting by microcinema

Originally released in 1973 but never before available on DVD, Painters Painting is the definitive documentary on the New York School of painters, from 1940-1970. Director Emile de Antonio (Point of Order and Millhouse) interviews artists in their studios about their art from the period of Abstract Expressionism, through Hard Edge and Color Field painting to Pop Art. Among the featured painters are Robert Rauschenberg, William de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Helen Frankenthaler, Frank Stella, Barnett Newman, Hans Hoffman, Jules Olitski, Philip Pavia, Larry Poons, Robert Motherwell, and Kenneth Noland.


Painters Painting is newly digitally remastered and restored by the Museum of Modern Art (New York) and the University of Wisconsin Film Department.

The film screens FREE on Thursday, May 31 from 6:30–8:00 pm.
