Divided Attentions: “The Worlds of Bernice Bing”
Documentary film The Worlds of Bernice Bing illuminates the life and times of visionary artist Bernice Bing (a.k.a. Bingo)—fine artist, community activist, lesbian, and Asian American. Through archival footage and interviews with scholars, colleagues, and friends, the film documents the importance of Bing’s place in American art history.
From her art studio in North Beach to her groundbreaking community work to her later life in rural northern California, Bing chose not to follow the trends of the day and created art on her own terms. The film tells the powerful and inspirational story of an American icon of the arts. Q&A and panel discussion follows the screening.
