Black white + gray ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Yale-educated and born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Sam Wagstaff's transformation from innovative museum curator to Robert Mapplethorpe's lover and patron is intensively probed in Black White + Gray. During the heady years of the 1970s and 1980s, the New York City art scene was abuzz with a new spirit, and Mapplethorpe would be at the center of it. Wagstaff pulled him from his suburban Queens existence, gave him a camera and brought him into this art world that seemed to be waiting for him, creating the man whose infamous images instilled emotions ranging from awe to anger. In turn, Mapplethorpe brought the formerly starched-shirt preppie to the world of drugs and gay S-and-M sex, well-documented in his still-startling photographs. Twenty-five years separated the lovers, but their relationship was symbiotic to its core, and the two remained together forever. The film also explores the relationship both men had with musician/poet Patti Smith, whose 1975 debut album 'Horses' catapulted her to fame."--Official website,
Jack Smith and the destruction of Atlantis ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jack Smith is simultaneously hailed as the godfather of performance art, a groundbreaking photographer and the 'William Blake of film'. His utopian ideals, artistic processes and bejeweled artworks became essential influences to contemporary art superstars like Andy Warhol, Federico Fellini and Matthew Barney. In her feature-length film debut, director Mary Jordan combines Smith's rare and unseen films and photographs with rare audio recordings, acting appearances, and other relics squeezed from Smith's vaulted archives. Jordan also delves into Smith's tenuous relationship with Andy Warhol--who adopted Smith's ideas and actors in his own work (including Smith's 'Superstars' concept), his vilification of New American cinema pioneer Jonas Mekas, and other previously undocumented biographical topics. This documentary pays homage to New York's ultimate anti-hero and the original King of the Underground.--From publisher description

Anticipation of the night by Stan Brakhage( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A film in the first person. The protagonist, like the members of the audience, is a voyeur, and his eventual suicide is a result of his inability to participate in the 'untutored' seeing experience of a child. Anticipation consists of a flow of colors and shapes which constantly intrigues us by placing the unknown object next to the known in a significant relationship, by metamorphosing one visual statement into another."--P. Adams Sitney
