Please join us for one of our upcoming Book Talks featuring the works currently on display in the Sherry Grover Gallery. Either BIMA Founder and Book Arts Curator, Cynthia Sears, or a special guest will guide a showing of selected works outside the display cases, allowing viewers to see the movement and multiple dimensions so critical to the appreciation of the book arts.

Book Talks meet in BIMA's Sherry Grover Gallery from 11am to 12pm on the following Saturdays: 

October 21- Diane Jacobs
November 4- Cynthia Sears
November 18- Marshall Weber
December 2- Cynthia Sears
January 6- Cynthia Sears
January 20- Jane Carlin

Due to the sensitive nature of handling Artist's Books, participants are asked to wash and dry their hands prior to the meeting. 

Space is limited during these intimate gatherings and reservations are recommended. Please choose no more than two of the offered programs so that others may have a chance to participate. If you are unable to get a reservation for the event of your choice or would like to attend more than two, Amy Goldthwaite will begin a waiting list two weeks prior to each Book Talk. 

Questions may be directed to Amy Goldthwaite, Curatorial Associate at amygold@biartmuseum.org.

RESERVE YOUR SPOT.

"Mr. Altman makes movies the way other men go on binges — with an abandon that sometimes gets the better of him — and which should be preserved and protected."
—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

McCabe Alternate

Musical score composed by Leonard Cohen!

This unorthodox dream western by Robert Altman may be the most radically beautiful film to come out of the New American Cinema. It stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie as two newcomers to the raw Pacific Northwest.

This dreamlike masterpiece from Robert Altman careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s.

November 21:

Nashville (1975)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Nashville here.

Nashville 1

Critically acclaimed and often included on “best films” lists, Robert Altman’s biting satire is both brilliantly subtle and epic in scale.

November 28:

Secret Honor (1984)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Secret Honor here.

Secret Honor

Based on the original play by Donald Freed and Arnold M. Stone, and starring Philip Baker Hall in a tour de force solo performance, Robert Altman’s "Secret Honor" is a searing interrogation of the Nixon mystique and an audacious depiction of unchecked paranoia.

December 5:

The Player (1992)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on The Player here.

playerapr10

Robert Altman has not really been away. Yet his new Hollywood satire titled "The Player" is so entertaining, so flip and so genially irreverent that it seems to announce the return of the great gregarious film maker whose "Nashville" remains one of the classics of the 1970's.
