    Double Feature Film Screening by Olympia Stone

    School of Sciences and Mathematics

    Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King andThe Original Richard McMahan

    The Halsey Institute is proud to present a double feature of films by director Olympia Stone. This film screening is free to attend and open to the public. Stone will hold a Q&A after the film screenings.

    Olympia Stone’s latest documentary, “Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King” (61 minutes), examines the work of Richmond, Va.-based artist Elizabeth King. This film will be preceded by Stone’s short documentary “The Original Richard McMahan” (20 minutes), a profile of the artist Richard McMahan, who was featured at the Halsey Institute in the 2008 exhibition MINIMUSEUM.

    “Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King” engages the viewer in the work of sculptor and stop-action filmmaker Elizabeth King, who embarks on each new project by posing a single question to herself: “Can this physically be done?” Tracing King’s creative flow, curiosity, and obsessive drive to solve the inevitable series of artistic and technical problems that arise in creating her disconcerting sculptures and animations, this documentary film explores King’s passion about the mind/body riddle, the science of emotion, the human/machine interface, and those things a robot will never be able to do. From studio to exhibition, and in conversations with fellow artists, curators, and critics, the film asks what looking at and seeing one another means in an increasingly mediated world.

    See the trailer for “Double Take” here: https://vimeo.com/232393945


    The multitalented outsider artist Richard McMahan is on a quest to painstakingly re-create thousands of famous and not-so-famous paintings and artifacts in miniature. From well-loved Picasso and Frida Kahlo paintings to more obscure intricate Maori canoes, McMahan has mastered dozens of genres over thirty years of creating, and he’s made most of the works on a cluttered kitchen countertop using recycled materials. McMahan is also the curator of a mini-museum with a collection that surveys the scope of humanity’s visual record.
