Vaginal Davis Presents: Rising Stars, Falling Stars – We Must Have Music!

For her August program, "Curatorial mother" Vaginal Davis has picked two small gems: Dudley Murphey's ST. LOUIS BLUES (1929) contains the only film footage of "Empress of the Blues" Bessie Smith, as well as her only recordings made outside of her Columbia Records contract. Amos Poe's THE BLANK GENERATION (1975) is a home movie about the birth of New York punk with Iggy Pop, Blondie and Patti Smith. Afterwards drinks and music will be served!

The event is part of the "Living Archive" project in collaboration with Daniel Hendrickson. (August 26)
