In conjunction with the current exhibition, Clarence John Laughlin and His Contemporaries (on display until March 25), The Historic New Orleans Collection will screen a double feature of documentaries on the notable photographer. At 9:30 am, grab a seat for Gene Fredericks' The Phantasmagorical Clarence John Laughlin, which stems from a 1977 interview with Laughlin about the book collection that consumed the artist’s compact Pontalba apartment. That footage is believed to be the only known of the artist. After a break for lunch, the screening for Michael Murphy and Michael Frierson's Clarence John Laughlin: An Artist with a Camera begins at 1:45 pm, illustrating Laughlin's relentless drive to create.
Fredericks along with Frierson and Murphy will be on hand after screenings of their films to discuss the projects and answer questions. Doors open at 9:30 am. Free. thnoc.org.
