6 pm reception
6:30 pm film screening and conversation

As arteries of commerce, culture, and history, rivers have been central to the work of avant-garde filmmaker Peter Hutton for more than 40 years. This program will feature a screening of Two Rivers (2001–2), a poetic, comparative portrait of the Hudson River and Yangtze River that speaks to the rise of China in relation to the decline of a post-industrial American region. The screening will be followed by a conversation between Peter Hutton and film curator Joshua Siegel.

Peter Hutton is the Charles Franklin Kellogg and Grace E. Ramsey Kellogg Professor of the Arts and director of the Film and Electronic Arts program at Bard College.

Joshua Siegel
is a curator in the department of film and media at the Museum of Modern Art.
