"On Noir"Artist Tour and Conversation
The film noir genre began with black-and-white mystery and crime films produced in the 1940s and 1950s. Femme fatales, doomed heroes, and cynical detectives were featured, utilizing artificial lighting, nocturnal and stormy scenes, as well as voiced-over narration. This style moved beyond its cinematic origins to include crime fiction, graphic novels and other story forms that relate fear, treason and imminent danger.
Visual artists Carey Clark, Jayson Keeling, Jeanette May and Jaime Permuth will discuss the stories behind their photographs, which are featured in Noir: Defining the Melodrama, and how they relate to the over-arching themes of the noir style that unites this groundbreaking exhibit as a whole. BCA's Longwood Arts Project Director and Curator Juanita Lanzo will moderate the discussion.
