January and February 2017 - Q&As

In January and February 2017, James traveled to attend and give talks at three screenings. The first took place at the Lancaster Museum of Art in Lancaster, California. James introduced his film, Love's Presentation, and participated in a Q&A after the film. 

In February, James travelled to Kunstmuseum Woldsburf in Wolfsburg, Germany to present his film Richard Hamilton. You can watch his introduction and Q&A with curator Daniel Kothenshulte in the video below. 

James' last stop was at Eton College, where he presented his film Every Picture Tells A Story, which was screened in conjunction with an exhibition of William Scott's work.

Beyond Baroque Closing Reception and Screening: RB Kitaj // A Shocking Accident, October 1

On Saturday, October 1st Beyond Baroque Literary and Arts Center in Venice (681 Venice Blvd) is hosting a closing reception for James Scott's New Work show. The reception starts at 3pm and the screening of RB Kitaj and A Shocking Accident will be at 4pm.

New Work will continue through November.

Based on the Graham Greene short story, the film A Shocking Accident, 25 min (1982), tells the strange story of an English schoolboy growing up.  The boy is played by Rupert Everett. The film won the 1983 Oscar for Best Short film.

RB Kitaj (1967) (18 min) is the second artist documentary made by James which tracks the artist as he discusses his attitude on art and talks about his work. Kitaj’s literary and political sensibilities shine through and the film provides some interesting insight into a complex creative mind.
