Agnes Varda: Les Veuves de Noirmoutier
March 12 - April 12, 2009
The Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts presents "Agnes Varda: Les Veuves de Noirmoutier (The Widows of Noirmoutier)" on view through April 12. This is the first exhibition in the United States of the filmmaker's 2004 video installation piece. "Les Veuves de Noirmoutier (The Widows of Noirmoutier)", is a powerful work about widowhood and mourning, the personal and the collective, virtual and actual temporalities and spaces, as well as the displacement of the cinematic in the gallery space (as spectatorship and montage).
