In the universe of the arts, worlds collide more often than you’d ever expect.
The moving and the still image collide as vital world filmmaker Abbas Kirostami brings his unique installation piece Abbas Kirostami: Doors Without Keys to the Aga Khan Museum from Nov. 21st to Mar 27th 2016. But that isn’t all as the TIFF Bell Lightbox is having one of their unique In Conversation with events on Monday night Nov. 23rd as TIFF Director and CEO Piers Handling sits down on stage to talk with the man himself about his career and his art.
This is the first ever solo art exhibition at the Aga Khan Museum and this master of world cinema will also undoubtedly get to talk about this, his career as a filmmaker and the upcoming retrospective of his worked entitled The Wind Will Carry Us: The Films of Abbas Kiarostami that launches on Feb. 25th of 2016 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. The Aga Khan Museum who are serving as co-presenters of this In Conversation With…will also be launching their own cinematic retrospective curated by the co-curator of Doors Without Keys and the TIFF run one curated by senior TIFF Programmer James Quandt, there will simply be an embarrassment of riches of any fans of this man’s work in order to get a complete perspective on his art and what makes him tick.
Keep it locked here as I will be in attendance at the In Conversation With…and report back on not only the unique insight of a one of a kind filmmaker but on the entire experience itself that we get treated too more often then we really deserve over at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
