Soichi Sakamoto and the Three-Year Swim Club

One-Time Events Presented by Julie Checkoway, author of the New York Times bestseller “The Three-Year Swim Club,” which is in development as a major motion picture; and Kelli Y. Nakamura, associate professor at Kapi’olani Community College and author of the article “Soichi Sakamoto and the Three-Year Swim Club: ‘The World’s Greatest Swimming Coach.’” Kate Clarke Lemay, the Portrait Gallery's acting senior historian, will moderate the Q&A. This conversation will center on the biography and portraits and of the pioneering Japanese American swim coach Soichi Sakamoto. During the Great Depression, Sakamoto established the Three-Year Swim Club for children on Maui’s sugar plantations, with the goal of transforming a multiethnic youth group into Olympic-level swimmers in an unprecedented amount of time. Sakamoto’s training club succeeded, and his achievement defied the racial prejudice against Japanese Americans at that time.

Painting Nostalgia: Jewish Portraits at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

One-Time Events In the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston are three compelling portraits of Jewish sitters. Although painted by different artists and in different contexts, "The Talmudist" by Jacob Binder, "Hannah" by Isidor Kaufmann, and "Jewish Man Reading" by Edouard Brandon share an often-neglected common trait: they were all made by Jewish artists who found success in wider, secular society through other subjects and genres. What drew these cosmopolitan, secular artists to deeply traditional Jewish sitters and scenes? How did depictions of Jewish life fit into their broader production? What do these works tell us about the journey of Jewish artists working in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries? Discover the answers to these questions and more with our guest, Simona Di Nepi, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Curator of Judaica, MFA Boston, as she traces the stories of these portraits and the artists who created them.

Virtual Studio Tour with Artist Chawne Kimber

One-Time Events Join quilter Chawne Kimber on a virtual tour through her studio and learn how she draws upon her family history for inspiration to create contemporary works. For centuries, cotton has been central in the lives of the women in Kimber’s family, as many of her enslaved ancestors cultivated cotton in rural Alabama. From picking to ginning to sewing, the lives of Kimber’s ancestors revolved around cotton. Eventually, quilting emerged as a primary form of self-expression.  Inspired by the quilts her relatives made in the late 1800s, Kimber interprets traditional forms in an improvisational style using vibrant modern colors of commercially available American-farmed, processed, and woven cotton. Combining minimal self-portraits in a street art style, Kimber uses quilts to respond to current race-related social justice issues. When not making artwork, Kimber is a mathematics professor and an academic dean at Washington and Lee University. Image credit: Chawne Kimber. Sponsor: Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Harmony in Blue and Gold

Performances Free, no registration required. Celebrate the reopening of the newly conserved Peacock Room with this special in-gallery performance. Drop in to hear the United States Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps Modern Flute Ensemble perform "Harmony in Blue and Gold," a composition by contemporary composer Eric Ewazen inspired by the Peacock Room by James McNeill Whistler.

Sanjuro

Films Get your free tickets here: mifune2022.eventive.org/films Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uq_rSsbhQnE Toshiro Mifune swaggers and snarls to brilliant comic effect in Akira Kurosawa's tightly paced, beautifully composed Sanjuro. In this sly companion piece to Yojimbo, jaded samurai Sanjuro helps an idealistic group of young warriors weed out their clan's evil influences, and in the process turns their image of a "proper" samurai on its ear. Less brazen in tone than its predecessor but equally entertaining, this classic character's return is a masterpiece in its own right. Description courtesy of Janus Films.

Goodbye, Dragon Inn

Films In person: Tsai Ming-liang, Lee Kang-sheng New 4K Restoration! Get your free tickets here: https://tsaimingliang.eventive.org/films Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHMxMJ6qkOU “For me, making a film is a form of writing, writing about the things that concern me deeply.” —Tsai Ming-liang Haunting, ravishingly beautiful, and at times utterly hilarious, Goodbye, Dragon Inn distills the minimalist style Tsai developed over his previous films to its very essence. In a cavernous movie house on its final night in business, a collection of ghostly denizens alternately watch the movie and wander the hallways and restrooms while King Hu’s martial arts classic Dragon Inn plays on the screen. This wistful elegy to cinema history (two of the actors, Miao Tien and Shih Chun, also starred in Hu’s film) is also a formalist comedy full of sight gags worthy of Jacques Tati. Goodbye, Dragon Inn is at once a daring departure and a further refinement of Tsai’s distinctive aesthetic. (Dir.: Tsai Ming-liang, Taiwan,… Sponsor: Asian Art Museum. Venue: Freer Gallery of Art.
