Happy 88th Birthday to William Klein!

Seen here is the 35mm film print from his 1970 "Eldridge Cleaver, Black Panther" movie, a documentary of the charismatic Black Panthers leader Eldridge Cleaver—filmed nonstop for three days by director Klein—captures a fascinating sketch of the controversial figure as he reflects on racism in America, attempts on his life, the Vietnam War, and the...

Walker Cinema: The Transfiguration is this weekend!

Set in the housing projects of Rockaway, Long Island, this is the story of a shy teenage orphan who immerses himself in vampire mythology as protection from (and perhaps retaliation against) bullying. Michael O’Shea’s contemporary spin on the vampire genre adapts traditional horror into an examination of poverty, race, and...

"The influence of the dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919–2009) looms so large that the current tribute to him spans not just multiple departments of one museum, but two entire museums in two different cities: the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. In February, these two institutions simultaneously opened retrospectives honoring Cunningham,...

Created by Bloomberg Businessweek employees Alexander Shoukas and Devin Leonard, Volume is a new music publication that focuses each issue on only one artist. The first issue, in fact, is one essay and one photograph, but the results are impactful.

The elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts and other culture-focused agencies like the National Endowment for the Humanities would make it harder for the Walker to fulfill its mission to serve as a catalyst for the creative expression of artists and the active engagement of audiences, writes Walker Art Center director Olga Viso.
