New River Fine Art. June 26th, 2010. 6:00 p.m.
New River Fine Art is about to premiere the new documentary film A Singular and Major Force, featuring never before seen historical footage of American master sculptor Frederick Hart (1943 – 1999). Hart’s remarks are accompanied by insightful comments by such contemporary luminaries as Dana Gioia, former chair of the National Endowment for the Arts, currently director of the Aspen Institute; Tom Wolfe, art critic and author; James Cooper, Editor of American Arts Quarterly and Director of the Newington-Cropsey Cultural Studies Center; Robert Chase, business partner and friend of the artist; Lindy Hart, the artist‚s wife; Stefania de Kenessey, composer and performer; and Jacob Collins, painter, teacher and founder of The Grand Central Academy of Art.
Through archival footage and photographs, historical interviews with the artist, and conversations with some of today’s important art commentators, A Singular and Major Force explores Hart’s influence on 21st century art, the controversies surrounding his work, his passionate fight for the moral rights of artists, and, in the decade since his death, whether the renewal and triumph of the human spirit for which he hoped is being realized. A selection of Hart’s sculptures will be on display and available for acquisition.
