Thirty-Three: Celebrating 33 Years of the Independent Spirit & Sundance Film Festival showcases 33 artists who are at the forefront of contemporary visual art. Curated by Morgan Spurlock (CNN’s Spurlock Inside Man, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and Super Size Me) with additional co-curation by Jensen Karp and Katherine Sutton of the esteemed Gallery1988 in Los Angeles, the exhibition celebrates the high caliber of diverse and sometimes wild, but always thought-provoking 33 years of Sundance Film Festival. With a collection of artists that embody the Festival’s innovative, edgy, provocative spirit, Thirty-Three unites a group that runs the gamut of contemporary Pop Art and beyond and provides a platform for new thought and conversation. The Kimball Art Center is honored to introduce these artists and their works that celebrate film, vision and independence.
The A.R.T.S. Tour of the exhibit, Thirty-Three: Celebrating 33 Years of the Independent Spirit & Sundance Film Festival, offers students the opportunity to explore the work of these artists and how they express their views of current events and the contemporary landscapes in which they live. Then, in the independent spirit of Sundance, students will create their own illustrated character and animate these figures in a flip book!
