Muxima Screens is back on the first Sunday of the month. Sunday 6th March we will be screening: Cutie and the boxer – about relationship and art (lovely story!)
The film is about the difficult 40-year relationship between Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, Japanese-born husband and wife artists who live in New York. Ushio Shinohara is a small player in the contemporary art world, known for painting with a pair of paint-soaked boxing gloves. Noriko has also worked on her own art, a character she created named Cutie. Cutie’s story is told in a comic-book narrative, where she comes to New York and falls for a broke older artist named Bullie. Anxious to shed her role as her overbearing husband’s assistant, Noriko finds an identity of her own.
Saturday 6th March, 6pm, free entry
