Cinema @ the MFA – Egó Sympósion: Film by Yasumasa Morimura
Egó Sympósion (2016) is the Florida debut of Morimura Yasumasa, the noted Japanese appropriation artist. Featured in our photography exhibition This Is Not a Selfie: Photographic Self-Portraits from the Audrey and Sydney Irmas Collection, Yasumasa borrows images from historical artists (ranging from Rembrandt to Cindy Sherman), and inserts his own face and body into them; many of which go against his racial, ethnic, and gender boundaries as an Asian male. This avant-garde film stars the artist as 12 famed self-portraitists and is both entertaining and visually stunning.
$5 movie ticket, plus MFA admission ($10 after 5pm on Thursdays). Free for members.
