SDAF, in conjunction with The Pearl Hotel, is pleased to present a special screening of Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, poolside at The Pearl Hotel in Point Loma.
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, Visual Acoustics celebrates the life and career of Julius Shulman, the world’s greatest architectural photographer, whose images brought modern architecture to the American mainstream. Shulman, who passed away in 2009, captured the work of nearly every modern and progressive architect since the 1930s including Frank Lloyd Wright, Richard Neutra, John Lautner and Frank Gehry. His images epitomized the singular beauty of Southern California’s modernist movement and brought its iconic structures to the attention of the general public. This unique film is both a testament to the evolution of modern architecture and a joyful portrait of the magnetic, whip-smart gentleman who chronicled it with his unforgettable images.
The 8:00 screening of Visual Acoustics will be prefaced by a presentation at 7:30 featuring original San Diego works of Julius Shulman by one of San Diego's foremost Modernists, Keith York of ModernSanDiego.com.
A $10 donation to SDAF is suggested. More info about this event available on Facebook.
