Fort Worth Modern Spins Popular Lecture Series Into Summer Film Series


Alfred Leslie and Robert Frank, “Pull My Daisy,” New York, 1959

The longtime, ever-popular lecture series Tuesday Evenings at the Modern (at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth) usually only runs through what we think of as the school year. But starting this coming Tuesday, Tuesday Evenings is extending into summer by launching a film series (under the name Tuesday Evenings At the Modern: Films).

The schedule has been released at looks great; see it here. Even if you’ve been able to see some of this work before, seeing it in the context of a museum crowd should add something to the experience, especially since discussions will follow each screening. The series kicks off Tuesday, June 2 with Short Films of Robert Frank

Via the Modern: “Selections for screenings are related to or recommended by artists and speakers who have participated in the lecture series or are otherwise affiliated with the museum. There is nothing particularly prescriptive about the line-up, but as with the lecture series, themes can be found and connections made. To create a full experience, these presentations include a brief introduction and opportunity for discussion following the films.”

These screenings are free and open to the public. Seating is first come, first serve.
