Jack Smith

Series Site

"Jack Smith’s (1932–1989) virtuosic output is revered for its caustic humor, self-invention, and debasement of institutional authority, which intensified throughout his ever-evolving work. In conjunction with the exhibition Jack Smith: Art Crust of Spiritual Oasis at Artists Space through September 9th, this program of films and previously unseen recorded performances, programmed by Jay Sanders and Jamie Stevens, includes Flaming Creatures, Normal Love, Scotch Tape, I Was A Male Yvonne de Carlo, and a newly discovered recording of Smith performing at the University of Colorado in 1980."—Metrograph
