Philip Haas: Butchers, Dragons, Gods & Skeletons
July 18 - October 25, 2009
3333 Camp Bowie Boulevard, Fort Worth, TX 76107
This will be THE art event of the summer in the Metroplex! Butchers, Dragons, Gods & Skeletons: Film Installations by Philip Haas Inspired by Works in the Collection was commissioned by the Kimbell, and presents Haas’s film installations which interpret and elaborate upon selected works in the Museum’s permanent collection. "Though based on deep research into the original artists and cultures, Haas’s films are poetic and sensuous in approach rather than factual like a documentary. Between seven and twenty minutes in length
and running continuously, they are projected on screens of various unconventional formats and configurations. All are accompanied by original music, and several appear in elaborate architectural and sculptural sets, further immersing the viewer in the experience. The installations complement a full display of the Kimbell’s permanent collection, each occupying a space near the work to which it relates." Do NOT miss this show!!
