Live Film! Jack Smith! Friday, May 28th, 20:00h Buddies in Bad Times Theatre 12 Alexander St., Toronto, Canada Pay-What-You-Can Admission
For five days last fall, the Arsenal Institute for Film and Video Art staged the largest Jack Smith gathering in history, bringing scholars, performers and filmmakers to Berlin to participate. New works were commissioned and past collaborators returned to celebrate Arsenal's acquisition of some of Smith's recently restored prints.
Jack Smith, performer, photographer and filmmaker is best known for his film Flaming Creatures, a stunning vision of exoticized gender and sexual transgression. His lasting influence in the art world is remarkable and Inside Out is proud to bring a piece of this very important project to Toronto.
Co-presented by LIFT, Arsenal, The Images Festival and Goethe-Institut Toronto.
Featuring films, performances or talks by Jack Smith, Pauline Boudry (Berlin), Renate Lorenz (Berlin), Oliver Husain (Toronto), Deirdre Logue (Toronto) and Stefanie Schulte Strathaus (Berlin).
This multidisciplinary event will be followed by a panel discussion.
