To coincide with his exhibition New Gravity, artist Tony Matelli has selected four of his favorite films for a series of screenings. We invite you to join us for this selection:


(2010, Dir. Christopher Nolan) | April 2 | 6:00 p.m. | Collins Cinema  

A corporate raider of the highest order … infiltrates the minds of other men to steal their ideas. Now he is hired by a powerful billionaire to do the opposite: To introduce an idea into a rival's mind, and do it so well he believes it is his own. 


Following the film, Cinema and Media Studies faculty will discuss the artist’s selection — and the intriguing notes he has provided on his choice:

“Ontological magical realism, I think about this a lot.”

This installment features Inception (2010), directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ellen Page.
