Special Showing's of Mary Lance' "Agnes Martin: With My Back to the World"

From the New York Times
"I'm very careful not to have ideas, because they're inaccurate," the artist Agnes Martin says in Mary Lance's touching documentary about her, but it's a lie. Ms. Martin was full of ideas, and she dispenses them engagingly in the course of the film, "Agnes Martin: With My Back to the World," made from 1998 to 2002.

Local documentarian Mary Lance' film has received great acclaim around the world -- don't miss this chance to see it here!

Produced and directed by Mary Lance 
Music by Steve Peters 
Special 2:00 PM Showings September 6th and 7th at Albuquerque's Guild Cinema

A groundbreaking documentary on the internationally renowned painter Agnes Martin.  Shot over a period of four years, from 1998 through 2002, Agnes Martin's ninetieth year, interviews with Martin are inter-cut with shots at work in her studio in Taos, New Mexico, with photographs and archival footage, and with images of her work from over five decades. In it Martin speaks about her work, her working methods, her life as an artist, and her views about the creative process. She also discusses her film, "Gabriel" and reads from her poetry and lectures. In keeping with Martin's chosen life of solitude, she alone appears in the documentary.
