On the Wings of Brancusi (2018) Produced by Checkerboard Film Foundation Duration: 52 mins
Insights into Brancusi’s legacy are presented by Carl Andre, Lynda Benglis, Ellsworth Kelly, Martin Puryear, Richard Serra, and Joel Shapiro, with additional commentary on Donald Judd, Roy Lichtenstein, Dan Flavin, Isamu Noguchi and Claes Oldenburg.
In 1995, Anne d’Harnoncourt, Director Emeritus of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (PMA), asked Checkerboard to document the PMA’s acclaimed retrospective on Brancusi for the Museum’s archive. The resulting footage became the genesis of the documentary. Film locations include the recreated Brancusi studio at the Centre Pompidou, the PMA’s Brancusi gallery, and studios and gallery exhibitions of the artists.
