Film & discussions in
May Open Access events
Join us for a special conversation and film screening of Juan Jaula es John Cage in our Carriage House Theatre on Friday, May 13, at 6pm as part of our Open Access series.
Juan Jaula es John Cage is a unique documentary made by video artist Zen Cohen about Mexican composer Guillermo Galindo and his unconventional work with a Mariachi band to perform a John Cage score. It's a complex, but fascinating exploration of culture and music.
The project began in 2006 and premiered at the de Young Museum in San Francisco in 2015. It includes interviews with John Cage scholars and musicians, performances in both San Francisco and Mexico, animations, found footage, and an original score by Galindo. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Cohen and Galindo led by Bay Area curator Julie Lazar, and a reception where you'll be able to meet the filmmakers.

On Friday, May 27, at 6pm, another Open Access event features a conversation with artist James Gouldthorpe, who will discuss his work Particles: A Painting in Ten Chapters, which finishes its run in the Project Space Gallery at the end of May. Read this recent review of the exhibition on SquareCylinder, and take this opportunity to see it before it's gone!
Lucas Artist Fellow and acclaimed writer Lynn Freed will also read excerpts from her short fiction and memoir at the event, and food & beverages will be available for purchase as you mingle with the artists and fellow art lovers.
