Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) is proud to present the Great Art on Screen series at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street in Newport. These visually stunning event documentaries from By Experience feature the most extraordinary and groundbreaking art masters of their time, in glorious HD color and depth.
"Klimt & Schiele: Eros and Psyche," at 2 p.m. Sunday, Apr. 28, recounts the start of the Vienna Secession, a magical art movement formed in the late 1890's for art, literature and music, in which new ideas are circulated, Freud discovers the drives of the psyche, and women begin to claim their independence. It was a movement that marked a new era outside the confines of academic tradition.
The event is hosted by Kari & Greg Steinke.
At the heart of Secession were artists Gustav Klimt and his protégé and dear friend Egon Schiele. This exhibition provides an in-depth examination of images of extraordinary visual power: from the eroticism of Klimt's mosaic-like works, to the anguished and raw work of the young Schiele in his magnetic nudes and contorted figures against the backdrop of nocturnal Vienna, full of masked balls and dreams imbued with sexuality.
OCCA appreciates the support of the Jeannette Hofer Fund at the Oregon Community Foundation, the City of Newport, and series benefactors Bill & JoAnn Barton, as well as individual event sponsors, which makes it possible to show By Experience productions at the PAC.
