Basilica Screenings is a film series that presents an array of works from new and repertory narrative features, documentaries, experimental films – programmed by Basilica Hudson’s film curator, Aily Nash, and creative directors Melissa Auf der Maur and Tony Stone.
Melissa joins us now along with artist, Jack Walls whose exhibition “Paintings, Et Cetera” will open in the back gallery at Basilica Hudson this Friday and be on display through August 1st.
Jack Walls has been a fixture of the New York creative scene since the early 1980s, working primarily in collage and painting. He is also a poet and will read from The Ebony Prick of the White Rose’s Thorn with musical accompaniment by Harbour to celebrate the exhibition opening this Thursday. The opening event will also include a screening of the 1989 short doc, Eye to Eye – a film about Robert Mapplethorpe – Wall’s longtime partner and fellow artist.
