Sam Green & Yo La Tengo "The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller"
Sam Green & Yo La Tengo "The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller" |
Sam Green returns to the Wex with his latest Ōlive documentaryĶ project. A follow-up Utopia in Four Movements ( a previous "live documentary" project presented here in 2010), Love Song examines FullerÕs remarkable life as a visionary architect, designer, and social critic, most famous for his creation of the geodesic dome. Green draws heavily from the Fuller archive at Stanford, an astonishing collection of notes, letters, blueprints, photographs, films, and ephemera that contains a wonderful record of the utopian thinker and creatorÕs massive body of work. Joining Green on stage is the legendary alternative rock band Yo La Tengo (Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew) who provide live musical accompaniment to the film and GreenÕs live narration. This is a wondrous night of film and music you wonÕt want to miss! (digital presentation, 60 mins).
This event is cosponsored by the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture.
