David Wilson: Duerme Mi Niña, or Mother Don’t Make Me Cry (Film Premiere and Live Performance)
September 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5 - $15
David Wilson, 2009 artist-in-residence, returns for a special live performance and screening of his latest 3-D film, Duerme Mi Niña, or Mother Don't Make Me Cry. Mostly shot at the Museum and several years in the making, this film explores the experience of love tempered by loss and takes, as a starting point, Isabella Stewart Gardner and the loss of her young son Jack. Wilson observes the museum and its caretakers through images of portraits of women in the collection as well as the staff who populate the galleries.
The music accompanying the screening is drawn from 17th century Catalan song and will be performed by Shirley Hunt, viola da gamba, Argenta Walthe, vocals and Esteban La Rotta, baroque guitar with live narration by David Wilson.
David Wilson is an artist, designer, filmmaker and the founding director of the Museum of Jurassic Technology (MJT) in Culver City, CA. He has produced thirteen independent films and has been honored through numerous grants and awards, including a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2001.
