The lithographs of David Lynch, and the video art of Bill Viola get shown this weekend at M.U.S.A., in Pietrasanta


The works of David Lynch, Bill Viola and others are featured this weekend in films shown at Pietrasanta’s M.U.S.A., as part of “Scolpire il Tempo” exhibition, curated by Alessandro Romanini, of the Fondazione Centro Arti Visive, all as part of this year’s Homo Faber exhibition.


Friday, the 11th of July, at 6:30pm: The American filmmaker David Lynch is known for his dark – and oddly unsettling films, such as Elephant Man, Dune, Blue Velvet, Savage Heart and Mulholland Drive. Less known are Lynch’s print-work – which he has produced since his earliest days. And these lithographs are the subject of the short films shown tonight.

There is an exhibition planned for August, at the Palazzo Panichi, in Pietrasanta, titled “A Dark Optimism” which will feature the prints themselves along with some film shorts. More on that as we get closer.

Friday, the 11th of July, at 8:30pm: Fashion gets featured as harmonic encounter between creativity, “artigianato”-and industry, with the projection of the documentary “Yves Saint Laurent: L’Amour Fou.” Also featured is “About Face: Dietro il volto di una top model” by the photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders.


Saturday, the 12th of July, 2014: an evening dedicated to the video artist Bill Viola, with screenings of some films: at 7pm: “Bill Viola: The Experience of the Infinite” by Jean Paul Fargier. At 9pm: Bill Viola’s “Four Songs,” and at 10pm: Bill Viola’s “The Passing.”


Sunday, the 13th of July, 2014, from 6:30 to 11:30: “Immagini che suonano bene” features the projection of recent Italian music videos.

“Scolpire il Tempo” exhibition is produced by: The Comune di Pietrasanta, Artigianart, The Camera di Commercio of Lucca, and Lucca InTec, Garfagnana Innovazione, the Lucca Film Festival, and SPAMI.
