Emma Cline Selects

January 21 to February 3

Writer Emma Cline curates a selection of films on the theme of “source material,” continuing a programmer-in-residence series copresented with Gagosian in the theater and online. Emma Cline Selects will feature cinema inspired by the ethos of Gagosian’s new fiction imprint, Picture Books. Cline explains: “Picture Books asks artists to respond to works of literature in order to open up dialogue. Thinking about the interplay between the origins of a project and the ultimate creation, I wondered about how filmmakers transform their source material.” To this end, she has selected films that are in conversation with existing cinema or the work of other artists, that originate in writing, or that reconsider historical events. These include Robert Altman’s 3 Women (1977) and Spike Jonze’s Adaptation (2002), Miranda July's The Future (2011) and Marielle Heller's The Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015)
