Doug Pray’s film about Michael Heizer’s monolithic sculpture, “LEVITATED MASS,” will be screened at Guild Hall, East Hampton.
On view Tuesday, August 19, 2014, 5:30 pm ET.
LEVITATED MASS is the story of a rock star, the artist behind the sensation, a $10-million, 22-city tour, and the international media storm that ensued. Prominently displayed outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), land artist Michael Heizer’s Levitated Mass gained worldwide recognition during its installation in 2012. Over 10 nights, a 340-ton solid granite boulder crawled through Southern California neighborhoods on a 294-foot-long, 206-wheeled trailer. Thousands of people came out to watch it travel through their communities. It is one of the only pieces of art in recent history to inspire such a reaction in pop culture. The film masterfully interweaves this artist’s biography, the dreams of a major museum, and the uniting of a city, examining the perennial question: What is art?
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with:
Michael Govan, Director of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Doug Pray, Director
Jamie Patricof, Producer

CLARK STOECKLY - THE UNITED STATES VS. PRIVATE CHELSEA MANNING
Clark Stoeckly -The United States vs. Private Chelsea Manning: A GRAPHIC ACCOUNT FROM INSIDE THE COURTROOM
Drawing and writing in real time from inside the courtroom, artist and WikiLeaks activist Clark Stoeckley here captures first-hand the extraordinary drama of The United States vs. Private Chelsea Manning, one of the most important and secretive trials in American history.
In the course of the trial, Private Manning insists that her release of the Iraq and Afghanistan war logs to WikiLeaks was an act of conscience, justified by the urgent need to reveal to the world the atrocities committed by the US military in the ostensible cause of freedom. At the prosecution table, military lawyers for the American government seek to set an example and discourage future whistleblowers by locking away Manning for decades, possibly the rest of her life.
Stoeckley’s vivid sketches from inside the court and beyond, together with carefully selected transcripts of the proceedings, trace the arguments as they move back and forth between the defence and the prosecution. His rendering of the trial provides both a vital record and a uniquely compelling read.
140 pages, fully illustrated in black & white • ebook with color illustrations
From its beginning—”My English professor’s ass was so beautiful.”—to its end—”You can actually learn to have grace. And that’s heaven.”—poet, essayist and performer Eileen Myles’ chronicle transmits an energy and vividness that will not soon leave its readers. Her story of a young female writer, discovering both her sexuality and her own creative drive in the meditative and raucous environment that was New York City in its punk and indie heyday, is engrossing, poignant, and funny. This is a voice from the underground that redefines the meaning of the word.
