North Texans have the chance to see an Art&Seek original documentary, Albert Alcalay: Self Portraits, at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth prior to its television premiere on KERA (Channel 13).

Albert Alcalay survived a concentration camp during the Holocaust, then became a jazz-influenced abstract painter and ultimately a Harvard professor. Three of his former students, including KERA’s Rob Tranchin (director of the recent South Dallas Pop), collaborated in the creation of Albert Alcalay: Self Portraits, a documentary on Alcalay’s life and art. Completed before the artist’s death last spring, the film explores the impact of intense, diverse experience on Alcalay’s expressionistic paintings.

The special screening is on Wednesday, Nov. 19, and is free for KERA members and a guest. Seating is limited; to reserve your seat, call 214.740.9220 or email [email protected].
