Art historian Tirza True Latimer, curator of the exhibition Acting Out: Claude Cahun and Marcel Moore, on view at the Judah L. Magnes Museum in Berkeley through June, will present a virtual walk-through of the exhibition. She will introduce a range of work produced in 1920’s Paris by these two life partners and artists in collaboration. A screening of the 2004 documentary film Playing a Part: A Story of Claude Cahun, directed by the English filmmaker Lizzie Thynne, follows. Thynne’s 40 minute documentary film honors the life and work of a politically active feminist who, with her partner, participated in experimental theater initiatives, contributed to artistic, literary, and political manifestations of the Paris surrealist movement, and conducted a creative campaign of resistance during the German occupation (for which she was imprisoned).
