Gerry Fiaka
My Art Belongs to Venice
How does a beach town become a sacred ground? Gerry Fialka's interactive workshop probes the enduring existence of artists in an ever changing Venice, California. Exploring the intentional and random roles that creative artists play in the life of Venice and vice versa, the workshop asks: How can a place affect the art making and art viewing done there, and exert a hidden influence on the psyches of its creative people?
Fialka surveys the lively history of film artists nurtured in Venice, from the Beats to the Hipsters to the Millennials. This impressive legacy includes Charlie Chaplin, Orson Welles, Agnes Varda, Andy Warhol, Oliver Stone, notable Boardwalk renegades, and many more.
