Films & Talk Explore the Art of Robert Hite [Berkshire on Stage]
A special film screening and artist talk will be presented at 7pm on Thursday (October 27) at Pittsfield’s Berkshire Museum in conjunction with the exhibition Living on Earth: The Work of Robert Hite. The solo show of sculpture, paintings and photography by artist Robert Hite is a dual exhibition at the Berkshire Museum and Hancock Shaker Village. Living on Earth will be on view at both venues through Sunday (October 30). Living on Earth is funded in part by Balance Rock Investment Group, the Dobbins Foundation, Guido’s Fresh Marketplace and Take Magazine.
The special film screening will be the Berkshire premier of two films about Robert Hite’s work, both directed by award-winning filmmaker Okin Khan. Little Corn follows Hite during a trip to Central America in the winter of 2015 to photograph and film rural houses along the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua. Living on Earth is a documentary portraying Hite and his preparations for his exhibitions at Hancock Shaker Village and Berkshire Museum.
A Q&A session with the artist will follow the films. Tickets are $7.50; $5 for members of the Berkshire Museum and Hancock Shaker Village.
