This winter, the AAM and Aspen Film present the Movies at the Museum program “Two Places,” featuring films that provide diverse perspectives on places that are often defined by stereotypes: Los Angeles and Tel Aviv. Complementing the nuanced looks at these places by AAM exhibiting artists Zoe Crosher and Thomas Struth, the pairing of a short film and feature-length film presents refreshing alternatives to clichéd representations of two global locations.

Two Places: Los Angeles
Films are presented free of charge on Level 3 at 7 p.m. Starting at 6:30 p.m., drinks and free popcorn are available at the museum café, SO.
