Art and Krimes by Krimes
Featuring Jesse Krimes, Russell Craig, Jared Owens, and Gilberto Rivera
Friday December 9, 2022
Ahmanson Auditorium, MOCA Grand Avenue
Art and Krimes by Krimes is a documentary film which centers on the story of Jesse Krimes, a visual artist who, while serving six years in federal prison, secretly created monumental works of art - including a 40-foot mural made with prison bed sheets, hair gel, and newspaper. Each panel was smuggled out piece by piece with the help of fellow artists, with Krimes only seeing the complete mural when he returned home. As Krimes’ work captures the art world’s attention, he struggles to adjust to life outside, living with the threat that any misstep will trigger a life sentence.
Following the screening, Jesse Krimes engages in a conversation around the film and his practice.
