New on 16mm: Jack Smith Prints

NEWLY RESTORED PRINTS FROM THE GLADSTONE GALLERY

Vanguard Filmmaker, radical photographer, seminal performance artist, Queer saint: the late Jack Smith maintained an intense, lifelong rapture conjured out of the frayed magic and glamour of a Hollywood that had come to camp out on the movie set of his own mind. The externalization of that tarnished magic and glamour, which obsessed him, enabled him to both exoticize and humanize a conservative American culture enamored with progress and bruised in its formation by economic speculation and cold war.
