JIM DINE: A SELF PORTRAIT ON THE WALLS | 1995 | 28 minutes. Nominated for Academy Award for Best Documentary Short. This remarkable documentary records eight days of intense work and quiet rumination as internationally renowned artist Jim Dine produces an exhibition of huge, bold charcoal drawings directly on the walls of the Ludwigsburg Kunstverein near Stuttgart, Germany. It is an unusual and transitory exhibition in that the drawings remain on the walls for only six weeks before being painted over.
ALL ABOUT LOOKING | 1996 | 29 minutes | Renowned American artist Jim Dine teaches drawing at the famed Internationale Sommerakademie fur Bildene Kunst in Salzburg, Austria. The method is rigorous: Models maintain one pose per week; students keep their easels in the same place and each day make a complete, well-observed drawing; then every morning the students have to erase their work and start again.
