Watch Louis Kahn's Tiger City Schnitzer Cinema at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. Sundaram Tagore (UO M. Arch. 1987) is a Calcuttaborn Oxford-educated art historian, gallerist and an award-winning filmmaker. A descendant of the influential poet and Nobel Prize-winner Rabindranath Tagore, Tagore promotes East-West dialogue through his contributions to numerous exhibitions as well as his four art galleries and their multicultural and multidisciplinary events. In 1985, Tagore received a scholarship to go to Bangladesh to study the buildings designed by the great American architect Louis I. Kahn, including Sher-e-Bangla Nagor, also known as the Tiger City. The parliamentary complex was the beating heart of the newly formed democratic nation. Popcorn and refreshments provided.
Programmed by Richard Herskowitz, curator of media arts, Schnitzer Cinema brings the best of experimental, documentary and arts-focused films and videos to the JSMA each year. Schnitzer Cinema is made possible in part with a grant from the UO Office of Academic Affairs.
