Tuesday, February 5th, we will welcome artist, curator, and filmmaker Scott Ogden as our Screening Room Artist in Residence.

Doors are at 6:30pm, screening starts at 7:30pm.

Scott Ogden: Make

Make is a one-night screening of the documentary created by artist and gallerist Scott Ogden.  The documentary, MAKE, is an intimate journey into the lives of four American self-taught artists: Prophet Royal Robertson, Hawkins Bolden, Judith Scott and Ike Morgan. Isolated and struggling with the disabilities life has dealt them, these artists all find their most powerful voice through art. Using the simplest of materials, they each produce work that is both sublime and at the same time completely their own. Primarily driven by scenes of the artists creating, their interwoven stories are told by the artists themselves as well as through family and friends whose lives they have touched. Vintage footage, quiet moments to reflect upon their work, and commentary by scholars and art historians help to round out the film.

Following the screening will be a Q+A featuring Scott and Director Malcolm Hearn.

Attendance is free with RSVP to rachael@wythehotel.com and guests are encouraged to secure their spot early.
