Who's that guy – Tell me more about Guy de Cointet
A film by Marie de Brugerolle with Director's Talk

26 July 8.30pm


We are pleased to announce the screening of Who's that guy – Tell me more about Guy de Cointet, a feature-length documentary by Marie de Brugerolle.

The film portrays Guy de Cointet (1934 – 1983), a French-born artist based in California who created text and sculptural works, often combining them as props and stage sets in theatrical performance pieces. The film is composed of interviews and documents compiled by Marie de Brugerolle over a period of 10 years. Artists including John Baldessari, Christophe Bourseiller, Larry Bell and Paul McCarthy talk about their contemporary Guy de Cointet, and previously unreleased documents provide insight into the singularity of his work.
