FILM: “THE WAY IT GOES”
Saturday, April 29 @ 4:30 PM
“The Way it Goes,” by filmmaker Lana Jokel, is a documentary film on EAST END COLLECTED7 participating artist Nathan Slate Joseph. His work is about expansion and contraction, statements of destruction and reconstruction, comprised of rusted sheets of steel and chosen objects. The works, vibrant in color, are cut, bent and welded into shapes and wall reliefs. The film shows the creative process. Interweaved with the art are scenes through the decades; of family life, art world events and figures, and the artist himself, intense, creative, outspoken, funny, and real.
Following the film will be the closing reception for EAST END COLLECTED7.
