Edward Hopper: Telling Stories – Speakeasy News. Evocative American painter Edward Hopper was to be the subject of an exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland this spring.
But since visitors can't go to the museum, the museum can come to them online. Hopper's paintings are wonderful jumping off points for creative writing, or, as film director Wim Wenders explains, for imagining unmade films. A few years ago, when we still had paper Speakeasy magazines, there was a Hopper exhibition in Paris and we asked pupils to send in creative writing pieces inspired by the paintings. We received some truly fabulous stories that showed how much students could read into the enigmatic situations Hopper loved to depict, even collège pupils from A2.
Wim Wenders is also inspired by Hopper, as he explains in this short video that was commissioned for the Beyeler exhibition.
