Introducing ARRAY @ The Broad, a bi-monthly screening series featuring classic and contemporary films curated to explore the intersection of art, history and cultural identity. With cinematic images as the centerpiece, this series will also engage audiences through robust post-screening conversations with a wide spectrum of artists and scholars. These immersive discussions, propelled by heightened social media and audience engagement, will offer an integrated exchange of ideas and insights beyond the screen that enliven many issues addressed by artists in the Broad collection.
In our inaugural program we presented 'PARIS BLUES' which chronicles the passionate relationship of two couples embarking on intellectual and artistic adventures in turbulent times as race, romance and jazz collide. Starring Sidney Poitier, Paul Newman, Diahann Carroll and Joanne Woodward and presented in exquisite 35mm, the screening of this 1961 gem served as the springboard for a dynamic discussion about identity, creativity and expatriatism. Curated and hosted by Ava DuVernay; Ryan Coogler, Tessa Thompson, Andre Holland, and Ledisi rounded out our artist forum.
