Golub regains art world's attention

Kartemquin's films about the late artist Leon Golub, available on the DVD Golub/Spero, are currently enjoying extended runs as part of exhibitions taking place in New York and Vancouver.

The New York exhibition "Leon Golub: Live and Die like a Lion?" at The Drawing Center runs until July 23rd, and has already received stellar reviews including a profile by esteemed critic Peter Schjedahl in the New Yorker. Kartemquin's Golub: Late Works are the Catastrophes is playing on a loop during the exhibit.

The Vancouver Art Gallery's exhibition "Bearing Witness: Works from the Collection" also features works from Leon Golub and his wife Nancy Spero, and will display documentaries from the Golub/Spero DVD until January 3, 2011.
