Exhibition on Screen – Pissarro: Father of Impressionism

Without Camille Pissarro, there is no Impressionist movement. He is rightfully known as “the father of Impressionism”.

Born in the West Indies, Pissarro found his passion in paint as a young man in Paris and, by the age of 43, had corralled a group of enthusiastic artists into a new collective. Their first show was scorned by the critics but the group had acquired a new name: the Impressionists. For the next 40 years Pissarro was the driving force behind what has today become the world’s favourite artistic movement.

Pissarro was a dedicated family man, generous with his advice, passionate about experimentation, well-read, socially aware and an anarchist. It was a dramatic path that Pissarro followed and, throughout it all, he wrote extensively to his family. It is through these intimate and revealing letters that this gripping film reveals Pissarro’s life and work.

Filmed on location in France, the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and the Kunstmuseum in Basel. With exclusive access to the most extensive archive of any Impressionist painter and to the first major Pissarro retrospective in four decades, this film explores the enthralling and hugely important biography of an extraordinary artist.

Matthew Starr – Dark Matter

Proud to partnering with the Simons Foundation for their In the Path of Totality initiative.
Men will literally learn astrophysics instead of going to therapy. Part stand-up, part science, Dark Matter is like if Mike Birbiglia and Stephen Hawking listened to Dashboard Confessional. If you’ve ever been in a relationship or existed in this known universe, this is the show for you!
Dark Matter made its sold-out, international debut headlining the British Science Festival in Coventry, UK.
Dark Matter has headlined top comedy venues in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, and many more.
Dark Matter was produced by Caveat, NYC’s home for intellectual nightlife.
