Tonight, Friday, August 25, I’ll be introducing a showing of Clash of the Titans at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City. (No, I don’t know what they were thinking, either.)
The museum is on West 17th Street in Chelsea, and is dedicated to art of the Himalayas and surrounding regions. Cool, huh? Clash of the Titans is screening as part of a film series called The Icarus Syndrome, which is tied in to a current exhibition: Take to the Sky: FLYING MYSTICS in Himalayan Art. I don’t know a lot about flying mystics, but I’ll be talking up Ray Harryhausen for sure, since he’s some kind of mystic on his own.
Admission is free with, hey, a $7 bar minimum. I’m not sure whether it’s screening on film or video (I suspect the latter) so be warned. Stop by and say hello if you’re in the mood. Details at the museum’s Web page, linked above.
