WHO GETS TO CALL IT ART?

United States | 2006 | Peter Rosen

WHO GETS TO CALL IT ART? film still

This snapshot of the 1960s downtown New York art scene focuses on the influential Metropolitan Museum of Art curator Henry Geldzahler, who in 1970 assembled a mammoth exhibition of post-1940 painting and sculpture by living NYC artists. In doing so, he got to call the work of Mark Di Suvero, Helen Frankenthaler, Jasper Johns, Claes Oldenberg, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Mark Rothko, Roy Lichtenstein, George Segal, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, and many others “art.” The movie is a lively collage of archival footage and contemporary interviews with many of these legends. “One of the greatest art documentaries ever made.” –Film Threat. Cleveland revival premiere. 78 min.
