Art21 and Nitehawk present an evening of films with artist Marcel Dzama. Dzama (subject of Art21’s upcoming Marcel Dzama: Making Movies with Amy Sedaris & Friends) creates drawings that feature a cast of humans, animals, and hybrid creatures rendered in pencil, ink, watercolor, and, at times, root-beer syrup. Dzama draws upon a mix of influences—from childhood monsters, like the Wolfman and Dracula, to the work of artists like Marcel Duchamp, Francisco Goya, William Blake, and Francis Picabia—to create unique worlds that are at once surreal and familiar, sweet and violent, and chaotic and elegant.
