To kick off the Biennial with opening night festivities on April 30th, MOWNA will host a special screening of Annie Berman’s The Faithful: The King, The Pope, and The Princess. The film covers a period of 20 years where Berman explores fandom in the circle of three pop icons, Pope John Paul ll, Elvis Presley, Princess Diana. The screening will be followed by a Q&A, the MOWNA party room and a first look entrance to the Biennial.
“There’s nowhere else that you can see this collection of art, in this way. There are hours of artwork to explore, play with, and listen to, twenty-four hours a day. It is an intimate experience, that you can have alone or with someone, with no crowds to navigate, no distractions, nothing in the way of you and the art” says wild artist cary ann shim sham who co-founded the museum along with artist Joey Zaza.
