New STREETWISE viewing with Mary Ellen Mark and Martin Bell
Just too many NYC Art events last night.. how to choose??
- The New ICP Show(s) Preview - 4 new Exhibitions, a few look really great!
- powerHouse Book's Christmas Book Signing event.. Eric Payson, Jamel Shabazz..etc
- David LaChapelle Opening at StaleyWise-I
wasn't invitedmissed his RED HOT MIAMI event!
- Krasner/Pollock show at Robert Miller
- Nicholas Nixon @ Yossi Milo - a must miss? All Hype? Tyler Green, & GalleryHopper Sum it up
So I dragged Dr.Quiz (my
other cuter better half) to Aperture to see a premier viewing of Mary Ellen Mark & her filmmaker husband Martin Bell's 2004 update of their original great Streetwise documentary.
So they 1st showed the original 1980's movie - which reminded me how amazing it was! But when they started to play the new movie titled, ERIN - after the character Tiny (in photo), now that she's
aged grown up! But, there were major fuckups technical problems! The 100+ person crowd only got to see ~2 minutes of it, DAMN! DAMN! DAMN! Well.. Mary Ellen and Martin took lots of questions, and talked about the movie.. they're both super nice! but no ERIN showing! Grrrrr!
So.. I hope Aperture will reschedule another viewing !
There's still hope.. Martin, mentioned their plan to try to
make a buck release the 2 movies together on a DVD someday.
