Modernism + Film: Levitated Mass

June 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Modernism + Film: Levitated Mass

Thursday, June 21, 201 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Bechtler Museum of Modern Art
420 S Tryon St.
Charlotte, NC 28202

Tickets: $8 (members) $10 (non-members) 

Levitated Mass is Doug Pray’s new documentary about a two-story tall, 340-ton, granite boulder that was moved from a quarry in Riverside to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and mounted atop the walls of a gigantic slot in the earth. The massive artwork, titled Levitated Mass, is the latest ‘land sculpture’ by one of America’s most exciting and misunderstood artists, Michael Heizer. Heizer’s sculpture references the expanse of art history — from ancient traditions of megalithic stones to modern forms of abstract geometries and cutting-edge feats of engineering.

Prior to the screening, UNC College of Arts + Architecture Associate Professor Greg Snyder will provide opening remarks.

An event reception with a full bar and free light bites begins at 6 p.m. in the Bechtler lobby followed by the presentation and film screening at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.

Watch the trailer for Levitated Mass.
