Architecture on Film: The Films of Charles & Ray Eames + ScreenTalk

Posted November 30, 2015

January 13, 2016: Join the Barbican in London for a screening of films by Charles and Ray Eames followed by a screen talk with Eric Schuldenfrei, Amy Gallick, and Eames Demetrios.

A special evening celebrating the design duo’s unique and influential experiments in the moving image—from investigations of their own designs and innovations in visual communication to poetic studies of everyday rituals and commissions for corporate clients; exploring architecture, design, science, and the computer.

A program of renowned and rarely seen works will be brought to the screen in their original 35mm format and as brand new digital-transfers, from material held in the Eames Archive at the Library of Congress.

The screening will be followed by discussion with Eric Schuldenfrei (ESKYIU, author The Films of Charles and Ray Eames: A Universal Sense of Expectation, Routledge 2014), Amy Gallick (Library of Congress) and Eames Demetrios (Charles and Ray’s grandson and director of the Eames Office).

In association with the exhibition, The World of Charles and Ray Eames, on view at the Barbican Art Gallery through 14 February 2016.
