Family Vision Video

Doors: 7:00 pm
Screening: 8:00 pm (dusk)
In collaboration with the public art initiative The Transversal Project, David Johnson will present Jacques Tati’s masterpiece, Play Time (1967), on the exterior architecture of CAM. Three local jazz musicians will perform a live soundtrack to the film.
Between Word and Image: Writing Event
Organized by Asma Kazmi
Saturday, July 14
11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Asma Kazmi invites visitors to participate in a writing event in CAM’s galleries. Participants’ texts will be displayed in a way that challenges the visual nature of the museum and, as with Kazmi’s artworks on view, lends deeper consideration to the act of writing.
