Description

Join filmmaker Lana Jokel for a screening of her short film, “Keith Sonnier-Sketches to Neon,” followed by a conversation with Jokel, Sonnier, and Alicia Longwell, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education.

Jokel’s 15 minute pilot illuminates the history and creative process of Sonnier, a pioneering figure in the fields of conceptual, post-minimal, video, and performance art who radically reframed the function of sculpture. Filmed at two locations in the Hamptons, the documentary follows Sonnier and Jokel to a local autobody shop where the artist is transforming a 1950’s Oldsmobile into a mobile neon sculpture. The second location is Sonnier’s Bridgehampton studio, where he and Jokel discuss his process of transforming sketches and maquettes into neon works.
