New York: Filmmakers’ Cinematheque, 1967. Offset. 8 ½ x 11 in. Very good. Item #6072
Party flyer for a happening featuring a light show, film, music, and fashion show at the Filmmakers’ Cinematheque on 125 W 41st St. The prevailing desire of artists to push new forms of expression, combined with the deep overlap between the dance, underground film, and experimental theater scenes, led to multimedia events like Andy Warhol’s Exploding Plastic Inevitable and the Filmmakers’ Cinematheque’s Expanded [New] Cinema Festival. The light show party advertised here is part of this lineage, and a scarce example of a less formalized multimedia event, exemplifying the intermingling of conceptual artists, filmmakers, party scenesters, and more spiritually-inclined projects like Bardo Matrix.
