Preview of `Sculpsit: Between Thought and Action' at Sunaparanta on 4 October '19, 7 pm

Sunaparanta - Goa Centre for the Arts in collaboration with The Guild Art Gallery Mumbai is delighted to invite you to Sculpsit: Between Thought and Action, an exhibition of drawings and sculptures, opening on Friday, 4 October 2019 at 7pm. Curated by Sasha Altaf, the show is produced by patrons Dipti and Dattaraj V. Salgaocar.

The show highlights the relationship between drawing and sculpture and the process that takes place in conceiving and realising a work of art. All the works show the trajectory between the first phase (the creation of the idea and thought) and its final form (as it comes to life). At the same time, the exhibition looks at the dialogue and complexities in the relation that emerges between artist and craftsman.

Venue: Sunaparanta–Goa, Centre for the Arts, 63/C-8, Near Army House, Altinho, Panaji Goa

Exibition will be on till 22 December 2019, 10 am to 6.30pm

William Wyler Festival at Sunaparanta - 10, 11, 13, 17 & 18 September 2019

William Wyler was one of the Hollywood greats – prolific, consistent, exacting and versatile.  He was nominated for 12 Oscars for directing and won thrice. His most celebrated classics are Ben Hur, Roman Holiday and The Heiress.  He completely devoted his craft to the storytelling and never let his “style” overcome the story or the characters. Perhaps that’s why he’s not as revered or studied as his peers today.

Over two weeks Sunaparanta will re-visit 7 of his “lesser greats”, the films that are as good if not better than his best films but less fortunate in that they are less remembered. Join us for two weeks of the 'great and under-rated' Wyler this September at Sunaparanta. 

Tuesday, 10 September 2019, 6.30 pm

 

Film: The Collector (1965)

Starring: Terence Stamp, Samantha Eggar

Run-Time: 1 hr 59 mins

Based on the novel by John Fowles, this unsettling thriller and hostage drama follows shy bank clerk Freddie Clegg (Terence Stamp) who ‘collects’ (kidnaps) an art student to ‘get to know her better’. Based on the novel by John Fowles.

 

Wednesday, 11 September 2019, 6.30 pm 

Film: How to Steal a Million (1966)

Starring: Audrey Hepburn, Peter O Toole

Run-Time: 2 hrs
