Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters

We begin 2013 with a special film program at the new Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland, located at the corner of Mayfield Rd. and Euclid Ave. in University Circle. The movie is a new documentary about celebrated photographer Gregory Crewdson, whose elaborately staged and lit pictures mimic film images and thus cry out for the big screen. Crewdson’s tableaux, which explore the surreal dark side of small-town American life, are realized with the help of a large crew (like movies) and are fraught with drama and unease. Many of his photos evoke Edward Hopper, Diane Arbus, and film classics like Blue Velvet, Vertigo, and Safe. Brief Encounters, which wasten years in the making, chronicles Crewdson’s painstaking efforts to complete his “Beneath the Roses” series, shot in rundown Lee, Massachusetts. “A must-see for art lovers.” –Variety. Cleveland premiere.
