Catalog #20: Jack Smith

Catalog #20: Jack Smith

Boo-Hooray is pleased to present our twentieth antiquarian catalog, dedicated to Jack Smith, the singular filmmaker, photographer, performance artist, visual artist, and icon of homosexual sensibility.

J. Hoberman characterized Jack Smith as a “terminally underground, wildly uncommercial photographer, filmmaker, performance artist, and all-around difficult personality.” Each of these respective descriptors is represented in the catalog, which contains voluminous photography (nos. 2-3, 14-15, 17-29, 31-34); drawings (nos. 13, 35-51); ephemera and publications (items no. 52-76); scripts and photo documentation of Smith’s performances (items no. 6-7); manuscript letters (items no. 5, 60); and other art crust from one of America’s most original artists of the post-war avant-garde.
