Movie Night
Directed by Sara De Luca
Produced by Rick Davidman

In a world where movie box office revenues exceed $40 billion a year from 1.3 billion tickets sold, it should be no surprise that films from both art house cinemas and multiplexes have been a huge source of subject matter and inspiration for many artists. Rick Davidman, who as owner of DFN Gallery in New York City became known for specializing in representational contemporary art, invited several dozen artists to have their work appear in MOVIE NIGHT. This exhibition will also coincide with the 27th Annual Hamptons International Film Festival nearby.

There have been many memorable films which have celebrated famous artists. The Agony and the Ecstasy, Frida, Lust For Life, Girl with a Pearl Earring, Pollock, and others come to mind. In fact, most people’s conception of what an artist is has probably come from the movies. And artists, such as Andy Warhol, Julian Schnabel, and David Lynch, have made films. MOVIE NIGHT, however, provides a welcome opportunity for artists to show how movies have impacted them. The artists participating in MOVIE NIGHT were not asked to provide literal portraits of movie stars or reproductions of memorable scenes, but rather to use their chosen film as a stepping-stone for creating their own original work. The exhibit will include paintings, drawings, sculpture, and more.
