Cooley High. 1975

…1975’s “Cooley High,” [is] an autobiographical film [Monte] wrote in an attempt to dispel myths about growing up in the projects…

“I grew up in the Cabrini-Green housing project and I had one of the best times of my life, the most fun you can have while inhaling and exhaling,” he says.

Todd Boyd (USC professor):
“No one had seen anything like this imagination of black characters,” he said. “It captured the black experience from a particular time in a way that very few other black films have done.”

A cool vintage b&w portrait of Brazilian Sculptor / Painter / Fine Artist….LYGIA CLARK….

From the moma audio guide:
Luis Perez-Oramas: Around 1958, 1959, Lygia Clark produced a series of monochromatic black and red small, square paintings that she titled Unities…
Lygia Clark (read by voice actor): Forms, like all things, express more than their mere physical presence…It is as if each thing radiated an energy connected to the energy of the living and real space.
Glenn Lowry: This installation replicates her grouping of these paintings in the first exhibition of the Brazilian Neo-Concretists, an art movement with which she was associated.

Luis Perez-Oramas: And they were notably interested by the fact that a work of art can only be conceived in present time. So, a work of art is not a dead body. A work of art is an active object.
