The Nasher Museum presents a film series to complement the exhibition Archibald Motley: Jazz Age Modernist. The films are free and open to all.
Entitled “From Montparnasse to Mexico,” this second installment of the Archibald Motley film series includes Josephine Baker in The Fireman of the Folies Bergères from Sirens of the Tropics (1928, 8 minutes) and Víctimas del Pecado (1950, 85 minutes). Motley lived and worked in Paris on a Guggenheim Fellowship from 1929-1930, and visited his nephew, the acclaimed novelist Willard Motley, in Mexico in the 1950s.
