Live at the Mint: Redoubt premiere
February 19 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
The Mint Museum is proud to present Matthew Barney’s critically acclaimed new film REDOUBT. Best known as the creator of the legendary CREMASTER Cycle of films and sculptures, REDOUBT is Barney’s most accessible, emotionally resonant, and visually stunning work yet. The film unfolds as a series of hunts in the Idaho wilderness—filmed during the solar eclipse. The characters communicate a mythological narrative through dance, as they pursue each other and their prey.
“Critic’s Pick! Breathtakingly beautiful. Matthew Barney’s film is a western that reaches for the cosmic. Builds an emotional power that’s unusual in any kind of art.” —Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
“Staggering beautiful. Redoubt has a mystical pull.” —Los Angeles Times
“Stunning cinematography. Viscerally satisfying, emotionally cathartic. A mediation on humanity’s relationship to nature and to itself.” —LA Weekly

Live at the Mint, presented by Fifth Third Bank, celebrates Charlotte’s dynamic arts community. Each week will feature a new lineup, from performance art to lectures with leading artists, provocative films to gallery tours with community leaders (and lots of specially-crafted art activities and craft cocktails in between). Every Live at the Mint is an intentionally layered experience that will incorporate the permanent collection and special exhibitions. The result: the Mint will be the place to be on Wednesday nights.
This event is located at Mint Museum Uptown
