“The Man Who Envied Women:” Film Screening and Discussion

Thursday, May 11, 6pm

Join us for a screening of Yvonne Rainer’s The Man Who Envied Women (1985), a 16 mm film that records a broken marriage between a professor and his artist wife, incessantly interrupted by documentary footage. This grainy Super 8 footage is of two sets of political actions with which Rainer was personally involved in the first part of the 1980s: the activist organization Artists Call Against US Intervention in Central America and Mayor Ed Koch’s Artist Homeownership Program, or AHOP.

Following the screening Professor Erina Duganne, co-curator of the exhibition Art for the Future: Artists Call and Central American Solidarities and Professor Daniel R. Quiles will be in conversation.

Presented in partnership with DePaul University’s Department of History of Art and Architecture.
