James Tissot’s oil on canvas Croquet is a popular and celebrated painting from the AGH permanent collection. Created in 1877-1878, the work entered the collection in 1965 and has since that time traveled the world as an important player in numerous exhibitions.
In our inaugural Film Favourites article, we revisit the 2017 AGH Film Youth Council program, exploring Amman Abbasi’s realist coming-of-age tale Dayveon, Sabaah Folayan’s unflinching police brutality documentary Whose Streets?, and Janicza Bravo’s weirdo dramedy Lemon.
