French and Spanish Surrealist Cinema Exhibition - October 5-30, 2015

 French and Spanish Surrealist Cinema - Slide

The current exhibition at the Kimura Gallery, French and Spanish Surrealist Cinema, focuses on five surrealist films that have their roots in "classic" surrealist cinema and later developments.  Included in this screening is the collaborative effort of Salvador Dalì and Walt Disney, Destino, a short animation using Dalì's imagery as the source for the production.  It was not realized in 1946 but was finally reconstituted and released in 2003.  

The synopses linked below are derived from the Cinémathique Annotations on Film and Animation Art Conservation sites that accompany the on-site exhibition at the Kimura Gallery.  This information is meant to give the viewer an entry point into the irrational and provocative imagery these filmmakers created.

Screenings are on a daily basis M-F (10:00 AM-5:00 PM) as indicated below:

Luis Buñuel (input from Salvador Dalí), Un Chien Andalou (1928)

Luis Buñuel (input from Salvador Dalí), L'Age d'Or (1930)

Walt Disney & Salvador Dalí (collaboration), Destino (1946) not screened and finally released in 2003

Jean Cocteau, The Blood of the Poet (1932)

Louis Buñuel, Le charm discret de la bourgeoisie
[The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie] (1972)



Relate North 2015 Symposium - November 4-6, 2015

You are invited to attend the art exhibition and symposium RELATE NORTH 2015. The symposium and exhibition is a collaboration between the University of the Arctic, ASAD thematic network, the University of Alaska Anchorage, the University of Lapland and the Kimura Gallery.

Arctic Sustainable Arts and Design (ASAD) is a Thematic Network that aims to identify and share contemporary and innovative practices in teaching, learning, research and knowledge exchange in the fields of arts, design and visual culture education. In summary, the network seeks to promote cooperation and collaboration between academic institutions and communities, advance art education amongst members and share both traditional and contemporary practices in teaching, learning and research.

Symposium and exhibition theme: What role can art play in representing a northern sense of culture, community and identity? How can art stimulate debate about indigenous issues and other northern and Arctic ways of living in challenging environments? What role can art play in communication of northern issues? How might art communicate some of the challenges facing those living in northern areas today? What role might art play in chronicling issues important to places and people in the north? These questions are central to this long-term project coordinated by ASAD.
