4 Films by Suzanne Simpson screens at EPAC!

  • Ed Paschke Art Center 5415 West Higgins Avenue Chicago, IL, 60630 United States (map)

We're pleased to partner with the Ed Paschke Art Center to present another screening of 4 Films by Suzanne Simpson, a collection of long-lost documentaries digitally restored and re-released by Pentimenti. Each of the four short films by Simpson profiles an artist who spent formative time in California during the 1970s, including Mark di Suvero, Roy De Forest, Hassel Smith and local legend Karl Wirsum, who was briefly a visiting instructor at the California State University, Sacramento. Virtually unseen for more than four decades, Simpson's whimsical quartet of archival films captures these artists flourishing amidst the 1970s Bay Area art scene, when Funk art was thriving.

The screening will be followed by a talk-back with Harrison Sherrod, executive director of Pentimenti Productions. Running time: 60 minutes
