Join us for the New Mexico debut of the film Living in the Story.  The film documents thirty-five years of art-making by photographer Patrick Nagatani. The film portrays an artist deeply concerned with world events, who uses imagery and storytelling to raise awareness about modern anxieties, with an emphasis on the threat of nuclear weapons. Despite the serious content of his subject matter, his innovative images are compelling and entertaining. An engaging raconteur and teacher, Nagatani talks in the film about his projects, his unorthodox photographic techniques, and his subtle weaving together of fiction and fact.

The film will be shown in Popejoy theater and will be followed with a Q & A with the filmmakers.  FREE tickets to Living in the Story can be picked up in person at the UNM Art Museum or at the UNM Ticket Office (at the Pit or the Bookstore location).  They can also be picked up right before the screening at the Popejoy Will Call window.

Right before the film screening the UNM Art Museum invites you to celebrate the opening of the new exhibition: Patrick Nagatani: A Survey of Early Photographs. The reception will feature food by My Sweet Basil and a video remembrance booth for those that wish to share memories about Patrick.

Come celebrate with us!

4:00 – 6:30 pm: Opening Reception

 6:30 – 8:00 pm: Film Screening and Q & A (in Popejoy Hall)

Renowned photographer Patrick Nagatani passed away last October at age 72. Born just days after an atomic bomb obliterated his parents’ hometown of Hiroshima, the Japanese-American devoted his artistic career to evoking the nuclear legacy of his adopted nation in haunting photo collages. Although known the world over, Nagatani spent many years as a professor emeritus in the Department of Art & Art History at the University of New Mexico. He taught photography from 1987 to 2009. The UNM Art Museum is celebrating his legacy with a new exhibition, Patrick Nagatani: A Survey of Early Photographs. Accompanying the opening of the exhibit is the premiere of a new documentary about Nagatani. Living in the Story documents 35 years of art-making with a special focus on Nagatani’s use of imagery and storytelling to raise awareness about modern anxieties (particularly the specter of nuclear weaponry). You can see the film this Friday, April 27, at 6:30pm in UNM’s Popejoy Hall (203 Cornell Dr. SE). Free tickets can be picked up in advance at the UNM Art Museum or the UNM Ticket Office. If tickets are still available on the day of the event, they can be picked up at the Popejoy will call window. Right before the film screening is a scheduled reception featuring food by My Sweet Basil and a video remembrance booth for those who wish to share memories of Nagatani.
