Pour le Peuple

Pour le Peuple (2022), which translates from French to “For the People,” is a 56-minute essay film that retraces the controversial history of one of modern art’s most iconic public sculptures, Alexander Calder’s La Grande Vitesse, located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The film was created by Nate Harrison, filmmaker and Professor of Practice in Media Arts at Tufts University. The film explores the politics of the sculpture’s ownership, control, polarizing community response, and the essential role citizens and community play in public art.

As a partnership between The Hauenstein Center’s Common Ground Initiative and GVSU Art Gallery, join us for a public viewing of Pour le Peuple followed by conversation and Q&A with director, Nate Harrison.
