Oddball Films presents Off the Canvas - Art in Motion, a lush evening of moving artistry. With a who's who of kinetic art as well as some beautiful pieces of the fluid process of creativity, it's a visually enticing and inspiringly creative program. Films include the mesmerizing documentary Kinetic Art in Paris (1971), a viscerally challenging, kaleidoscopic homage to light, sound and motion featuring some of the world’s foremost kinetic artists. Belgian documentarian Paul Haesaerts attains intimate access to Picasso's artistic process with the help of giant panes of glass in the eye-popping A Visit to Picasso (1949). See the inventive motile sculptures of Len Lye in an excerpt from the dynamic documentary Art of the Sixties (1968). Innovator of the mobile and sculpture superstar, Alexander Calder plays and performs with his miniature hand-crafted kinetic circus in the charming Calder's Circus (1963). George Kuchar brings us a fun and frenzied portrait of his friend and local artist in The Lady From Sands Point (1967).
