New Series of Modernism + Film
Back for its 10th season, the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art's Modernism + Film series will kick off with a slate of four free films, shown in conjunction with the exhibition Isaac Julien: Lina Bo Bardi -- A? Marvellous? Entanglement. Guest speaker remarks will begin at 7:30PM in the Wells Fargo Auditorium.  Tickets are free but must be reserved in advance as space is limited. 

Developed in partnership with the Charlotte chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, the program includes introductions to the films by scholars, urban planners, architects, art historians, film experts, and others. 

Thanks to Bank of America's Wednesday Night Live program, visitors can arrive early to view Isaac Julien: Lina Bo Bardi -- A? Marvellous? Entanglement for free before the film.
