Radio broadcasting – the first audible transmission of information through radio waves – is a powerful and cosmic medium. The artworks selected explore concepts of radio and waves in a broader sense. The program opens and ends with broadcasts we usually don’t listen to with all our attention: the opening themes from 25 news bulletins, cobbled together in a work by Bill Balaskas, and Susan Hiller’s stirring lines that have been translated from radio frequencies emitted by the Big Bang.

Special Film Screening | Tim Burton: Big Eyes (2014) Access: Free public access (limited seating)

Running time 108ʹ

Directed and produced by Tim Burton, Big Eyes is based on the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization

and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered, though: Keane’s art was not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret (Amy Adams). Big Eyes centers on Margaret’s awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings and her tumultuous relationship with her husband.

Screening is followed by a panel discussion with key figures in the film’s production.

Location: Colony Theatre, 1040 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach

hand-drawn animations from the Japanese artist Atsushi Kaga.
