In partnership with Art in the Twenty-First Century (Art21) and its Access ’12 initiative to increase knowledge of contemporary art, AVA is proud to present free screenings of two new episodes from the sixth season of Art 21, the only primetime national television series focused exclusively on contemporary art. AVA is located at 11 Bank Street in Lebanon, NH.

On Thursday, April 19 at 6pm, AVA will show Episode 2: Boundaries. This program looks at artists who synthesize disparate aesthetic traditions, present taboo subject matter, discover innovative uses of media, and explore the shape-shifting potential of the human figure. Featured are David Altmejd, assume vivid astro focus, Lynda Benglis, and Tabaimo.

On Thursday, April 26 at 6:30pm, AVA will show Episode 4: Balance. Through sculpture, paintings, and installations, the artists in this hour grapple with equilibrium and disequilibrium as they create highly structured works that challenge conventional notions of perception and representation. Featured are Rackstraw Downes, Robert Mangold, and Sarah Sze.

Both screenings are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Please join us!

Mother Nature’s Child Screening

Mother Nature’s Child—A Free Movie Screening Offered in Partnership with the Upper Valley Land Trust

Thursday, September 22, 6:00pm.  Join us!

The Upper Valley Land Trust and AVA are delighted to share a free screening of Mother Nature’s Child, a documentary that explores nature’s powerful role in children’s health and development through the experience of toddlers, children in middle childhood, and adolescents.

The film marks a moment in time when a living generation can still recall childhoods of free play outdoors; this will not be true for most children growing up today. The effects of “nature deficit disorder” are now being noted across the country in epidemics of child obesity, attention disorders, and depression.
