Gremlins (Joe Dante, 1984) 

The 1984 instant classic Gremlins exemplifies Joe Dante’s unique voice as a filmmaker in an otherworldly horror film set in your very familiar backyard. The film tells the story of cinema’s cutest fuzzball, Gizmo, and the very big responsibility required to keep him from spawning terrifying, destructive little monsters. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, The Goonies), Gremlins was a unique box office smash in a summer full of hits.

Raging Bull (Martin Scorsese, 1980) With a big leap in his career as the director of the Roger Corman-produced Boxcar Bertha (1972), Martin Scorsese polished his style and turned around to create his breakout film Mean Streets (1973) the following year. The film began a longtime collaboration between Scorsese and Robert De Niro that reached a pinnacle in the 1980 film Raging Bull.

Exhibition
Apr 11, 2015 - Jun 14, 2015

Mexico City–based artist Mario García Torres creates cinematic narratives that explore obscure histories and personalities associated with conceptual art of the 1960s and 1970s. He presents his projects in a variety of media, including video, installation, photography, and sculpture, and he often uses antiquated technology, such as 16-mm film and slide projections, to parallel the era he is revisiting. For each work, García Torres researches evidence and myths related to relatively unknown events from the larger, more well-known moments of that specific period in art history.
