EXHIBITION! Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet: Three Works 
August 4 to September 24, 2016
Level 0-3, Display Case + CRC/bookshop

Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet: Three Works at the Carpenter Center comprises a video, stills, an annotated script, and other materials related to three distinct films by Straub and Huillet. Each installation reveals the varying and complementary methods used to confront the challenges of presenting the moving image in gallery contexts, while providing an introduction to the renowned French filmmaking duo’s cinema. Straub (b. 1933) and Huillet (1936–2006) were partners working intimately from the early 1960s until Huillet’s death, continually pursuing a writing and filmic practice dedicated to profoundly interpreting the art, literature, and institutions of Western culture.

Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet: Three Works is organized by James Voorhies, the John R. and Barbara Robinson Family Director of the Carpenter Center, in coordination with Miguel Abreu Gallery, and is a selection of works from the exhibition Films and Their Sites presented at Miguel Abreu Gallery from April 24 to June 19, 2016.

The exhibition is realized in connection with the film series Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet at the Harvard Film Archive from September 15 to November 24, 2016, originally organized by Joshua Siegel, Curator, Department of Film, Museum of Modern Art, New York. United States tour of the films is organized by Thomas Beard.

TALK! Writings: Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet
Monday, September 19th at 5:30PM

Level 3, CRC/bookshop

In conjunction with the current exhibition Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet: Three Works and film series at the Harvard Film Archive, CRC/bookshop hosts our latest book event. Writings by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, recently published by Sequence Press and edited by Sally Shafto with Katherine Pickard, begins with Straub's early film criticism from the 1950s and traces the evolution of their writing over five decades. The publication includes Straub-Huillet's writing activity from manifestos to detailed descriptions of working methods, letters, questionnaires, interviews and oral interventions. The publication offers a behind-the-scenes look at their writing and practices and rigorous methodlogies as translators of key texts, which mirror those of their film production and distribution. 

The event will begin at 6pm with readings of select pages written by Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet, followed by a discussion with writer, editor, and translator Sally Shafto and Sequence Press co-founders Katherine Pickard and Miguel Abreu about the editing and design process, and will conclude with a conversation with Shafto and scholar Barton Byg. Following the book event, Harvard Film Archive will screen Antigone in the theater at 7pm.
