At 4 on Sunday afternoon, June 5, actress Amy Madigan – Harris’s real-life wife who portrayed flamboyant museum patron Peggy Guggenheim in the film – joins Getty curator Mary Morton to discuss the film, the artist who inspired it and what it was like to co-star in her husband’s love letter to the late painter.
Madigan, who most recently starred in the dark HBO series "Carnivale," has also appeared in Places in the Heart, Riders of the Purple Sage and Field of Dreams.
Tickets to the event are free, and reservations (which are mandatory) can be made by calling (310) 440-7300 or by visiting the museum’s Web site at www.getty.edu. The lecture will be held in the Harold M. Williams Auditorium.
This event is held in conjunction with "Interjections," a loan exchange program between the Getty and L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Through June 12, Pollock’s drip painting, "Number 1, 1949," can be viewed in the Getty’s West Pavilion.
