The Body Politic | Thomas Houseago and James Gray: Male Bodies

Thursday, January 31, 2019, at 7 pm

At the GETTY CENTER - Museum Lecture Hall

Free | Advance ticket required

Los Angeles-based British sculptor Thomas Houseago's approach to the human form combines traditional and unconventional materials to create bulky figures rather than graceful classical poses. His large-scale works convey the power and vulnerability of the male body. Writer-director James Gray joins Houseago to discuss the creation of male figures and characters.

Based on the 1998 book by the acclaimed British author and illustrator Raymond Briggs, this beautifully hand-drawn, animated feature film tells the true story of Raymond’s parents – Ethel and Ernest - two ordinary Londoners living through a period of extraordinary events and immense social change.

Heart-warming, humorous and bittersweet, the film follows the lives of lady’s maid Ethel and milkman Ernest.  From the socially stratified 1920s to the moon landing of 1969, the film depicts, through Ethel and Ernest’s eyes, the most defining moments of the 20th Century: the darkness of the Great Depression, the build up to World War II, the trials of the war years, the euphoria of VE Day and the emergence of a generation from post war austerity to the cultural enlightenment of the 1960s.  

The film features the voices of Academy Award Best Supporting Actor winner Jim Broadbent, Academy Award Best Actress nominee Brenda Blethyn and Olivier Award winner Luke Treadaway and introduces an original song written and performed by Sir Paul McCartney.
