Picasso & Braque Go To The Movies 
With filmmaker/gallerist Arne Glimcher
(The Mambo Kings), painter Chuck Close, and filmmaker Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly/Scaphandre et le Papillon).
Some of the biggest names in the visual arts world gather to discuss the amazing impact of early cinema on Cubism, one of the most significant art movements of the 20th century. Influential filmmaker/gallerist Arne Glimcher, painter Chuck Close, and artist and Academy Award™-nominated filmmaker Julian Schnabel will take part in this special Mavericks presentation. The artists championed by Glimcher, through his PaceWildenstein Gallery in New York City, represent a rich and coherent history of 20th century art. In asking himself what impact cinema has had on various generations of artists, Glimcher turned to the advent of cubism and the groundbreaking paintings of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque. Picasso, Braque and Early Film in Cubism, a major gallery show and book, soon emerged, contrasting film clips from early cinema with cubist paintings. Glimcher has now turned that show into an hour-long documentary, featuring some of today’s leading artists, intellectuals and curators, including Close and Schnabel, as well as Martin Scorsese, who signed on as a producer and contributed to the film’s narration. With Picasso & Braque Go to the Movies, Glimcher, Schnabel and Close will screen and discuss the film, and reflect upon the relationship between the advent of early cinema and some of the most important art works ever made.
