The Moderns (1988, 126 minutes), Alan Rudolph's evocation of Paris in the 1920s, stars Keith Carradine as a fictional painter set amongst real world figures like Gertrude Stein, Pablo Picasso, and Ernest Hemingway. This film is the first in the "Artists Behaving Badly" series, created by the Clark's Steve Satullo. Artists tend by nature to be transgressive, in the life as well as the work. While the Clark usually celebrates the boldness of the artist's work, this film series takes an ironical look at examples of bad behavior conducted during the artist's life--be it forgery or fornication; drugs or drink; mayhem, madness, or even murder. The event is free to the general public.
