Art, Film, Museums

Amar Kanwar’s Such a Morning can be found in the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s photography gallery, where the museum’s New Pictures series showcases artists who push the boundaries of new media. The New Delhi-based artist’s 85-minute, single-channel film was first shown at the prestigious modern-art showcase documenta 14, and receives its U.S. premiere here. The film centers on an aging math professor who embarks on a study of 49 types of darkness. Archival footage, a fictional narrative, and documentary materials are used to create and challenge perspectives on reality. It’s fitting subject matter for our times. The film will be shown every 90 minutes during museum hours, starting at 10:10 a.m.
