Saturday Screenings is a free program of film screenings presented monthly in partnership with the National Gallery of Australia.

Directed by John Tristram, Black Angels: A Widening Vision follows the artist Gordon Bennett’s studio process and travels in Europe after receiving the prestigious Moët and Chandon Art Fellowship at the National Gallery in 1991. 

Gordon Bennett’s Notes to Basquiat (The Death of Irony) (2002) is currently on display in Australian art: storylines. This major display, drawn from the National Gallery’s collection, weaves together multiple stories, different cultural traditions, and a range of art historical perspectives – an approach the late artist would describe as ‘a widening vision’. 

This title is held in the NFSA collection.

Please note: this film screens at the National Gallery of Australia (James Fairfax Theatre).
