Film Screening: SHUT UP AND PAINT
January 14 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Please join us on January 14 at 1:30 PM for a very special screening of SHUT UP AND PAINT, a short film by artist Titus Kaphar. A multi-disciplinary artist, Kaphar’s paintings are featured in several 21c traveling exhibitions, including Pop Stars! Popular Culture and Contemporary Art; Dress Up, Speak Up: Regalia and Resistance; This We Believe; and Fragile Figures: Beings and Time.
Called “a fascinatingly layered piece…unusually occupied by questions of process and power,” SHUT UP AND PAINT (20 minutes, 2022) is a new documentary short about the Painter Titus Kaphar as he looks to film as a medium in the face of an insatiable art market seeking to silence his activism. SHUT UP AND PAINT was recently recognized as one of fifteen films to advance in the Documentary Short Film category for the 95th Academy Awards. This award-winning film received the Grand Jury Prize at both the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and Independent Film Festival Boston. It was also selected for DOC NYC’s “Shortlist: Shorts” and is a Cinema Eye Honors nominee for Outstanding Nonfiction Short.
A co-production of DCTV and Revolution Ready, SHUT UP AND PAINT is directed by Titus Kaphar and Alex Mallis, produced by Chloe Gbai, and executive produced by Matthew O’Neill and Perri Peltz.
