Moonlight & Movies I Make Me Famous
Join us for a special screening of the documentary Make Me Famous (Brian Vincent, 2021, 93 min). The film tells the story of the Lower East Side art movement through an unknown artist, putting creativity itself centerstage. Set during what was arguably the last great art explosion in American history, Make Me Famous explores the life and work of painter Edward Brezinski in his quest for fame. The film provides an intimate and original look at NYC’s 1980s downtown art scene, which spawned such famous break-out artists as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring. Some of the many artists and voices interviewed include Eric Bogosian, Patti Astor, Kenny Scharf, Marguerite Van Cook, James Romberger, and more.
A conversation led by filmmakers Brian Vincent and Heather Spore and featuring artists Peter McGough, Frank Holliday, and Dr. Marguerite Van Cook follows the screening.
