Talk: The Art of the Movie Poster: A Conversation with Mike Kaplan and Kenneth Turan

4 pm | Sun, February 25, 2018
Ahmanson Building

An ideal movie poster, according to Mike Kaplan, "captures graphically the creativity and emotion of the film-going experience" in a single image, while at the same time standing alone as a work of art. A designer, art director, and producer, Kaplan has first-hand experience crafting campaigns and posters, the most famous among them A Clockwork Orange. In this conversation, Kaplan and Kenneth Turan, film critic for the Los Angeles Times and National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, will discuss the artistic and historic significance of posters from Hollywood's Golden Age. The conversation celebrates the opening of The Art of the Movie Poster: Highlights from the Mike Kaplan Collectionat LACMA.

The Art of the Movie Poster: Highlights from the Mike Kaplan Collection will be shown in two parts, the first on view from February 24 through April 29 and the second from May 12 through July 1.
