The Chalkboard ChroniclesCo-Directors: Tom Judd and Jeff Wolfe
THIS IS A FREE EVENT AT THE ACADEMY MUSEUM OF ART
Synopsis: In 1997, the artist Tom Judd curated an exhibit in the window of TZ Art gallery in New York City called The Chalkboard Chronicles. The show was designed as a rotating month long exhibit, with the centerpiece being three large chalkboards. Each week, three artists were invited to do their art on one of the chalkboards. Spalding Gray was one of the participants and the ﬁlm provides some incredible interviews with the former writer and monologist, as well as an original monologue created on his chalkboard. After each week the boards were erased, and three more artists took their turn. During this time all the artists were interviewed on camera, ﬁlmed while they were working, and the completed works were documented before being erased. The ﬁlm also takes you into the studios of some of the other artists that participate in the project 17 years later, creating a compelling inquiry into the notion of impermanence and memory.
Running Time: 38:00
