See the classic New Deal film The Plow That Broke the Plains (1936) by Pare Lorentz, and prior to the screening enjoy an introductory discussion by Assistant Curator of Photographs Jessica May. May will talk about the historical significance of Lorentz’s work and its relationship to Mary Lucier’s video installation The Plains of Sweet Regret(2004), currently on view at the Carter. Mary Lucier is a pioneering figure in the history of video art, and her works were among the first to be acquired by institutions such as the Whitney Museum of American Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Accommodations have been made for program attendees to park in the designated UNT Health Science Center lot if the museum’s main lot is full.
