Dec 20 – Dec 31 all-day Friesen + Lantz Fine Art
BEN STEELE: “Beg, Borrow & Steele” Friesen+Lantz announces the final exhibition of our inaugural 2022 season: “Beg, Borrow & Steele” which features whimsical new work from acclaimed contemporary artist Ben Steele. With an education built upon classical training, Steele utilizes the processes of the old masters with a contemporary sensibility; never staying in one place for too long. The result is a clever, wide-ranging body of work – from still life to portrait to landscape (and often somewhere in between) – melding art history and pop culture references in his ever-changing process. “Building this exhibition was a diverse experience, from dabbling in sculptural work to developing a multi-piece interpretation of Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup through the lenses of some of my favorite artists and art styles,” says Steele. “Getting to study and emulate the style and craft of these images throughout my career has brought me immense purpose. And I think that getting to recontextualize these works – as other artists have done before me – allows for them to continue to exist in other forms.

The remarkable human story of Stephen Hawking – the international icon and feted genius. In this definitive theatrical feature doc, unseen archive and unrivalled access to his closest family, reveal, for the first time, both the scale of Hawking’s triumphs and the true cost of his disability and success. The film, released in 2021, runs 90 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with BAFTA and Emmy award-winning producer Anthony Geffen. Registration strongly recommended to reserve your seat. More about the film: Catapulted to rock star status and global fame by his book A Brief History of Time, Hawking became the most famous scientist on the planet. He sought to uncover the ultimate answers to the Universe and find a Theory of Everything – one mathematical theory that would let us know, in his words “the mind of God.” Yet Hawking also faced a life-threatening and debilitating illness that had changed his life. Motor Neurone Disease robbed Hawking of his ability to walk, move and breathe and ultimately deprived him of his voice. Hawking passed away in 2018. Now, his immediate family comes together to reveal the triumphs and tragedies of his dramatic personal story. Along with Stephen’s insights ...
