CD/FW company members will explore the idea of the very act of creating a portrait or modeling for one. Drawing ideas from art history, photography, and personal histories, the dancers will bring their personal interpretations to this long-standing tradition of the “portrait” as a form of human record-keeping and storytelling through art.

The Modern Art Museum will present the U.S. premiere of the Smithsonian Channel documentary Freud’s Naked Truths. For most of his career Lucian Freud was overlooked —a man out of step with his time. However, his extraordinary portraits— of children, lovers, gangsters, supermodels, even the Queen of England — pushed boundaries of the genre. This intimate film explores his life story and remarkable body of work with those who knew him best – his models, children, lovers, and friends. The film will premiere on Smithsonian Channel in July.

A powerful, harrowing and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism.

The film will be followed by a moderated discussion with special guests.
