The Vilcek Foundation Celebrates LOST: A Showcase of the International Artists and Filmmakers of ABC’s Hit Show
May 20 to June 5, 2010
The Vilcek Foundation gave LOST fans grieving the end of their favorite television program a behind-the-scenes view of the diverse cast and crew, along with many of the iconic props from the show. By focusing on the images and backgrounds of 20 immigrant and first-generation contributors to the wildly popular television show, the Foundation also advanced its primary mission: to heighten awareness of foreign-born contributions to American culture. LOST’s executive producer Carlton Cuse, writer Melinda Hsu Taylor, actor Jorge Garcia (“Hurley”), and cinematographer John Bartley, were among the featured artists.
Explore the impact of immigrant artists on American Modernism. Drawing on their diverse backgrounds, these artists often made their new home the subject of their work, creating celebrated images of the American landscape, from New York to New Mexico.
